Bianchello is an ancient vine variety, also called Biancame, which is only cultivated on the hills surrounding the RiverMetauro. It is a mythological wine because Tacitus, philosopher and writer of the Roman Empire, mentioned it as the reason why Hasdrubal was defeated near this river by the Roman army in 207 B.C.Bianchello has represented for the wine-growers of my family and for me, as a third-generation expert, the symbolic vine variety, the point of reference of a whole life in this business.
Our work has led us to find out the soils where we could plant the vineyards, each soil with its own characteristics, suitable to give grapes and wines with strong personality and to test advanced oenology techniques in winemaking, with vinification in reduction and cryomaceration.
This wine is made with passion, research and technology.
