Gratia Plena Puglia Bianco IGT 2021, Cantine Ionis
"Our new favourite white wine"
"Just so moreish - thanks for including it in my subscription this month!"
Everything the Palmisano family do seems to have a little bit of magic to it. From the family who make our top selling Primitivo, comes this deliciously easy drinking white wine from their beautiful Puglia vineyards. The grapes are grown in the hills using the sapling and espalier system of cultivation and cooled by the sea breezes from the Adriatic. They use traditional agriculture with no chemicals and only natural yeasts. The grapes are harvested by hand, destemmed and pressed very gently to retain all the fruit flavours. No oak and only a light filtration.
Straw yellow with green glints. Fresh citrus nose with plenty of wild flower aromas. Ample structure and a fresh, stony, mineral attack and a lively, aromatic finish.
