Cantina Indigeno ‘Calanchi’ Vino Bianco 2020

Winery: Cantina Indigeno is the result of 4 friends obsessed with “primal and wild wines”. Located near Teramo in Abruzzo, the 4 friends [Alfredo Giugno, Nicola Reginaldi, Fabio Petrella, and Loreto Lamolinara] meld experimentation with minimal intervention and organic viticulture. Their engaging, innovative wines have swiftly established a devoted following.

Winemaking: Grapes are from a north-facing ‘cru’ vineyard in Atri, at 400 meters in elevation. Destemmed and soft pressed, spontaneous fermentation with wild yeasts, 7 day maceration on the skins, aged in fiberglass tanks. [Many thanks to Cantina Indigeno for the vinification details.]

Tasting Notes: A gleaming fusion of mango, orange, lemon, sea spray, candied ginger, hibiscus, grapefruit, super light fizz framed by green tea tannins and citrus acidity. Apricot, lemon, nuts linger on the salty finish. Vivid, luminous, spright.
