POMPEIANO BIANCO I.G.T.
With the grapes from our Vineyard “la Rotonda” we produce an
amphorae wine, tribute to the history of the Pompeian wine and to the
most important archeological ceramic scholar, Heinrich Dressel.
A wine where Mt. Vesuvius blends with the myth of Pompeii.
Wide organoleptic spectrum, rich in olfactory notes. They range from hints of medlar and apricot with hints of yellow peach and broom flowers. The mineral plus of sulfur notes penetrates the beeswax. Deep palate and slightly corrugated by a tannin that the maceration has made alive. To combine with fish dishes with an important structure and medium-aged cheeses.
