Bianco Umbria IGP 2016

Vitiano Bianco was born from one of the many experimental vineyards Falesco has planted through its relationship with the University of Viterbo. The grapes (50% Vermentino and 50% Verdicchio) thrive in the sedimentary clay soils around the Marciliano estate. Harvested in September, the grapes are crushed and vinified separately, then blended together to create an excellent wine of unparalleled value.

Tasting Notes

Vitiano Bianco is a balanced, delightful, and fresh wine with captivating aromas of citrusy lime, ripe Anjou pear, and fragrant herbs.

Food Pairing

Vitiano Bianco is the perfect accompaniment to pasta with shellfish, summer casseroles, and garden salads.
