TRAMONTI BIANCO (WHITE WINE)

It is made of a wise blend of Bianca Zita and Biancolella grapes, a recipe inherited for centuries with the two vineyards cultivated in the area of production. We extract this wine from the steep slopes of the hills in Tramonti, that are the green frame of the Amalfi Coast. Its colour is pale yellow, with an intense and delicate flavour, it reminds of green apples and wildflower honey. When tasting it, it has got a noble acidity and a solid structure.
