Interesting fact

"Half of the grapes are handpicked and the other half mechanically from 50 year old vines. All grapes are then hand sorted with double selection before being pressed. After finishing his studies at Beaune in Burgundy, Julien Mus, the winemaker, returned to the Vaucluse and in 2005, after years of working in the cooperative, started Domaine de la Graveirette on his own, with quality being his goal. In 2012 he began working organically and soon after biodynamically, with the 2015 vintage certified by Demeter."

Vintage

2019

Region

Puglia, Italy

Grapes

100% Falanghina

Tasting notes

Fermented in oak barrels with light battonage (stirring on the lees) for extra body and texture. The nose is ripe with exotic fruits like pineapple, mango and papaya sprinkled with lime zest and nestled in a hollowed out grapefruit with tangerine wedges and little white flowers all around. The palate carries all of these fun fruity flavors and adds soft almond and a hint of a salty sea breeze.

Pairs with

Gingerbread cookies, molasses cookies, shortbread

Interesting fact

Placido Volpone is one of the first wineries to certify the supply chain of it's wine via Blockchain technology.
