Botromagno Poggio al Bosco 2013

A distinctive cru wine produced from Greco and Malvasia grapes grown in an ecologically pristine area on the border of the Bosco Difesa Grande, recognized as Puglia's most important "green lung." It was planted in 1991 with the specific goal of producing grapes of exceptional quality. The soil and terroir are reflective of Bordeaux, with abundant pebbles and gravel below chalky topsoil. From the 2013 vintage onward, the vines that are the source of Botromagno's Gravina DOP wines are certified organic.

Tasting Notes

Deep straw-yellow in color, aromas of apples and peaches are complemented by notes of honeyed melon. On the palate, fruit-forward flavors are balanced by a racy acidity, making the wine both versatile and ageworthy.

Food Pairing

Try this unforgettable white wine with cedar-grilled salmon, shrimp sautéed with garlic, lemon, and parsley, veal milanese, or tom yum soup,
