Terre del Crifo Castel del Monte Bombino DOP Bianco
Bombino Bianco in its highest form, grown following the region’s oldest farming practices, has the salty, mineral flavour of the sea breeze that floats in from the Adriatic, over the gentle slopes of the hills around Ruvo di Puglia.
Classification: Castel del Monte Bombino Bianco Denominazione di Origine Protetta
Grapes: Bombino bianco single variety.
Production area: Hills of Murgia, 400 m. above sea level.
System: Pergola Pugliese.
Harvesting: Mid September.
Vinification: The grapes are immediately taken to the winery for soft pressing. The must is then cooled and kept at a low temperature for some hours. Once it has become clear, it is allowed to ferment using pre-selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16°C. The wine is then aged in steel until it is ready to be bottled.
Organoleptic characteristics: Clear straw yellow in colour. To the nose a bouquet of white flowers, crisp fruit and herbs. The freshness and sapidity in the mouth are perfectly balanced with the alcohol content, leading up to a persistent citrus and balsamic finish.
Food pairing: Raw fish carpaccio, peppered mussels, broad beans and chicory, stuffed cuttlefish, sea bass cooked under salt.
