Zaleuco Bianco IGT Calabria Mantonico 2017 (75cl) - Le Moire
Buying the case of 6 bottles you will save 10% A white with warm Mediterranean tones; it has flowery hints of bracken which blend with a soft, mellow fruitiness. A hint of mineral adds zest to its flavour.
The vines are situated at around 400m above sea level, on terraces that slope down to the Savuto river, surrounded by unpolluted woods. The “virgin” ecosystem and the wind that blows from the nearby Tyrrhenean Sea, safeguard the health of the vines and so minimise the use of agropharmaceuticals. Thermals from the nearby river intensify the aromas of the native cultivars. A south west exposure to evening sun slows down the ripening of the grapes. This softens the harshness that can sometimes be found in wines from the south. At the beginning of September, the grapes are picked by hand, destemmed and pressed in a single process. Then follows a static decanting at low temperature prior to removing the first dregs. Finally, a slow vinification at controlled temperature.
