Through Bianco di Ampeleia we can express the identity of our territory in a different way than the red wines.
We wanted to recover the tradition of co-planted vineyards, where different varieties live together in the same vineyard and become a single wine. This is what our Bianco speaks of: of how harmony can be created through diversity.
The Bianco vineyards were grafted by selecting wood from an old vineyard close to the estate, choosing the healthiest and most well balanced plants. Here Trebbiano is the predominant grape, sharing rows with Malvasia Bianca and Ansonica.
With each passing year, co-planting gives a more rounded and elegant Bianco. Brief maceration produces a colour tending towards golden, sapidity and acidity go hand in hand, accompanying the succession of tropical fruit, citrus, camomile and rosemary. A true gastronomic white perfect with any food. Have fun pairing it!

In Ampeleia, the force of the Upper Maremma region of Tuscany encounters the sea breeze, giving rise to delicate and elegant wines; this is the power of harmony. Our wines speak of a territory formed of highs and lows, of history and innovation, of asperity and love.
Our root is Cabernet Franc. From the very first pressing we understood that it had an undeveloped potential. Cabernet Franc is the grape variety that best expresses the identity of our territory.
The Mediterranean essence of this hinterland inspired us to recover its ancient grape variety par excellence, Alicante Nero, which lives in symbiosis with other varieties less well known to the ears of locals, but which are truly expressed here: Carignano and Mourvèdre.
