This elegant Chardonnay is produced on the Bocca di Lupo estate in The Murgia region of Apulia. The distinctive characteristic of this area is its “pietra”. The etymology of the word “Murgia” refers sharp stone or rock and makes a specific reference to the dry stonewalls that line the countryside. "Pietrabianca" also refers to the stones that rural farmers hit while ploughing the fields and once they were crushed and ground into the soil, helped enhance the flavors of the wines grown there. Rich, complex and at the same time fresh and pleasant, Pietrabianca shows that Apulia is a region of great white wines too.
TASTING NOTES: A luminous yellow with greenish highlights. Complex and nuanced aromas with notes of both citrus fruit and tropical fruit in addition to light floral sensations and vanilla. Fresh, savory, and mineral palate with light touches of oak.GRAPES: 90% Chardonnay, 10% Fiano.
