‘Frecciabomb’ Orange

Frizzante Bianco   |   Foggia - Italy

About

The high yielding Bombino Bianco is the star in this fizzy goodness. Bombino’s home is Puglia and in particular the areas surrounding Valentina’s vines. The aromatics of the grape are unmistakable and with astute farming controlling yields there is an intensity to the wine as well. Valtentina really coaxes all of the variety goodness out through a bit of skin contact and the result is a wine that is textural and skinsy with just a bit of funk to keep it interesting.

The grapes were harvested in early August and cold soaked overnight. The fruit was destemmed and lightly crushed to stainless-steel tanks where it fermented on skins for four days. Following this period the grapes were pressed back to bottle and blended with the free run juice to finish fermentation in bottle without any additions or anything removed. The wine aged for roughly four months to finish the fermentation and released without disgorgement.
