Tasting notes

The noblest expressions of Pecorino, Passerina and Trebbiano grapes are combined together to create the Incastro Bianco “Madia” (literally “white joint).
The three different grapes are grown with the traditional Abruzzo pergola training system, which offers shelter to the grapes from the hot summer sun while leaving the bunches with ventilation and the space necessary to grow luxuriantly. The vineyards are south exposed and located at about 130 meters above sea level, and the yields per hectare are carefully kept below 140 quintals.
The bunches are selected during the harvest. Passerina and Pecorino are harvested in mid-September while Trebbiano ripens until the end of the month, sometimes even over the first days of October. In the cellar the grapes are softly pressed at a low temperature. The three types ferment separately in stainless steel at controlled temperatures and only at the end of it the winemaker chooses the exact percentage of each grape variety that will be fitted together to create this unique white. The ageing is carried out for a month in stainless steel vats and for a month in the bottle.
It has a light straw yellow color and a good fragrance that perfectly recalls the characteristics of our territory: the nose is fruity and clean, with aromas of small white flowers and a slight hint of bitter almond. In the mouth it is fresh and perfectly balanced, with citrus notes and exotic fruits; it pairs easily with a wide choice of dishes and is infallible as an aperitif.
