WHY WE LOVE IT
Bianco Potenti is produced 100% with the Fiano grapes, harvested and specially selected by hand in the second week of August. Once harvested, the grapes are pressed softly and the fermentation takes place in thermo-conditioned stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 14 ° C. The wine ages for at least 4 months in the tanks before being bottled. Bianco Potenti has a delightful pale straw yellow color, with hints of lime green. On the nose, it opens with an intense bouquet of linden, acacia, thyme and exotic fruits.
Silky soft on the palate, it has the right touch of acidity with a dry finish.
Recommended in combination with fish, crustaceans, molluscs, unseasoned cheeses and white meats.
THE STORY BEHIND
This high quality white grape is primarily found in southern Italy in Campania. The FIANO grape has Greek origins and was the grape that produced the Apianum wine so loved by the Romans. “Apianum” means “vine loved by the bees for its sweetness." Over the course of linguistic transformations through the years, it became afianum and then fianum. Fiano was known to Frederick II of Swabia and Charles I of Anjou in the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries, initially vinified in the sweet and fizzy version. In today’s modern world, it has evolved into a highly awarded dry and full-bodied wine.
