White wine from Puglia

Crisp dry white wine from Italy with the scent of fine yellow fruit and a bit of toast. The taste is smooth, pleasant and persistent. Very tasty with fish pasta and salads.

Description

The southern Italian Apulia is best known for the excellent price-quality ratio of its red wines. But in recent years there has also been plenty of experimentation with the planting of white grapes. A problem, however, is the fairly high summer temperature in Apulia, which means that the grapes easily become overripe and therefore retain little acidity.

This is especially true of the Chardonnay, which many growers in Apulia consider to be the ideal grape despite this disadvantage. The dynamic cooperative Vecchia Torre from the town of Leverano thinks differently and in 2006 planted the vermentino on a grape variety that is resistant to heat.

The small vineyard of less than ten hectares is located between two hills, which means there is almost always a cooling breeze. As a result, the temperature is lower and the vermentino retains the desired fresh taste and fruitiness. In addition, considerable investments have been made in equipment that cools the tanks with white wine sustainably fed with electricity from solar panels.

Vecchia Torre also limits the yield in the vineyard, which gives the wine a special quality. This small-scale produced white wine has been very successful since its introduction and tastes significantly more exclusive than the price suggests.

Heerlijk wijn mooi vol met klein frisje bij afdronk die absoluut niet zuur is. Wij drinken de wijn bij zeetong.

Deze wijn is aan mijn bestelling toegevoegd omdat een wijn die ik had besteld niet op voorraad was. Hier ben ik de dag na mijn bestelling door een medewerker over gebeld en zij stelde voor om in plaats daarvan een lekker wijntje uit te kiezen. Het kiezen van deze vervangende wijn is haar goed gelukt. De wijn is heerlijk vol met een frisje we hebben het samen met zeetong gegeten maar op zichzelf smaakt de wijn ook meer dan prima.
