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 riverby 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:
San Cesareo 2015
Bianchello del Metauro Doc
This wine is obtained using grapes from different vineyards situated on hills which get to the Apennines from the Adriatic Sea, starting from 80 up to 250 metres above sea level. The sirocco winds, the libeccio (or garbino, like local people call it), the northwest wind and the Tramontane as well as the intense, diverse sun exposure make the grapes perfectly ripe.
This wine represents the classic way in which Bianchello expresses itself: vibrant crystal straw yellow.From the olfactory point of view, it offers fragrance of elderflower, acacia and yellow rose, fruity perfume of peach, apple and white plum.
Pleasantly full-flavoured with strong freshness, persistent and slightly vegetal and aromatic.
Very good as aperitif, with all fish dishes or shellfish and with not spicy white meat.
