Baccabianca 2013 - Tenuta Grillo
Baccabianca of Tenuta Grilloit's aWhite winefrom the table and for this reason - as a table wine - according to the competent Authorities, I cannot reveal to you precisely which grape variety it is.
I can only tell you that it is a tale ofWhite grapesmore cultivated in the real Alexandrian, according to the vision of a producer with a free and unconventional hand.
An “almost difficult” wine because it goes against the trend of producing white wines that are “easy” to drink and immediate.
In fact we are talking about awhite texture,intense colorand above all ofaging. But you will be surprised by the combination potential and pleasantness of such a particular sip.
Why you should drink it

In this wine thewhite grapesthey are vinified almost like red wines, so throughlong macerations(with thepeelseigrape seedsleft for a long time in contact with themust, giving color and intensity), long aging before commercial release and no chemical intervention, not even sulfur dioxide, the only preservative allowed even in the natural world.
A white dressed in red, a wine to try absolutely!
When to uncork it
Eye,it is not the classic transparent white, is a Guido Zampaglione wine!
