Colleformica ‘Formica Gialla’ Vino Bianco 2018

Estate: For over 100 years, the Bombetti family have cultivated their 3 hectares of land, 2 hectares for vines, the rest a mix of olive & fruit trees and vegetable gardens. Located 40 km southeast of Rome, father and son Sergio and Paulo Bombetti farm with low intervention, organic and traditional methods. Grapes are those traditional to the area, the vines are all over 40 years in age.

Winemaking: Spontaneous fermentation with wild yeasts, 7 days skin contact. “Aged in fiberglass until bottling. Minimal added sulfur and no filtering or fining.”

Tasting Notes: Deep gold in colour with aromas of baked pear, a drizzle of honey, citrus blossom, yellow apple and clean minerality. Apple, chamomile, baked pear, yellow apple and citrus acidity integrate with a creamy mouthfeel, super light green tea tannins and flinty minerality. Bright lemon highlights the crisp, mineral finish.
