Cantina di Lisandro ‘Alabranno’ Fiano Campania IGP 2017

Estate: Husband and wife team, Rosa and Almerigo Bosco, established Cantina di Lisandro in 2007. For over 100 years, Rosa’s family has been growing grapes in the steep Calatine Hills overlooking the Volturno River in Campania, southern Italy. The 10 hectare estate takes its name from the estate Rosa’s grandfather, Lisandro Fusco founded Cantina di Lisandro in 1907. The duo is dedicated to preserving and promoting native Campanian varietals.

Winemaking: Vineyards are farmed using organic methods. Fermented in steel vats, followed by 6 months ageing in stainless steel. ‘Alabranno’ means ‘dawning’ in the local dialect, a tribute to the viticulture activities her grandfather would do “at the first light of day”.

Tasting Notes: Gold in colour with aromas of lemon, clean minerality, almond, wildflowers and an herbaceous streak. Pear, lemon, pineapple, green apple are glazed by citrus acidity. Clean minerality and citrus zest accent the bitter almond finish.
