PALLAGRELLO BIANCO 'RICCIO' ALEPA 2020 DESCRIPTION

The Pallagrello Bianco 'Riccio' from the Ale.P.A wine cellar is a fresh and elegant wine from a white grape variety historically grown in the Caserta area. Pallagrello Bianco, in fact, was one of the few varieties present in the famous Vigna del Ventaglio vineyard at the Royal Site of San Leucio near the Royal Palace of Caserta and was considered one of the noblest vines of all. Rediscovered and enhanced over the last few decades, Pallagrello Bianco is proving to have considerable potential. Vinified as a single varietal, it offers a pure, Mediterranean white wine with aromas of ripe fruit, floral hints and aromatic herbs.

The Pallagrello Bianco 'Riccio' wine is an ideal label to discover the true face of this ancient Caserta grape variety. Ale.P.A is a small artisan company, which since the beginning of the 1990s has been on a path of valorisation of local indigenous grapes. In the approximately 3 hectares of vineyards, they mainly grow Pallagrello Bianco and Pallagrello Nero. The company's philosophy is very clear: to distinguish itself from the big wineries with a niche production dedicated to those who want to taste wines that speak directly and frankly about the production territory. The management of the vineyards and the work in the cellar follow practices oriented towards minimal intervention, precisely to preserve the varietal characteristics of these rare vines and to be able to make them known to all enthusiasts in their authentic guise.

Riccio' Bianco is a pure Pallagrello, made from grapes grown in the hilly area of Caiazzo, near Caserta. After harvesting, the grapes are softly pressed and the must is fermented in steel tanks, using only indigenous yeasts. Before bottling, the wine rests for 12 months in steel tanks. The wine presents itself with a beautiful golden colour, bright and brilliant. The nose opens on delicate aromas of white flowers, aromatic herbs, aromas of yellow-fleshed fruit and soft honeyed nuances. The palate is intense and harmonious, with a juicy and fragrant texture. The finish is pleasantly balanced with a distinct sapid streak.
