In the winery
Winemaking: after destemming and soft crushing the blend of grapes, must ferments spontaneously thanks to a pied de cuve of native yeasts, the only ones which increase the expression of our Terroir. After 2 months at the end of alcoholic fermentation, at low tempe-rature (13-14 °C), must is soft pressed in order to separate it from grape skins. Natural fining and stabilization, no fining agents added.No filtration.
Ageing of wine on lees: 5-6 months in steel tanks, shaking it every 15 days. Very low amount of sulphur dioxide added before bottling.
Organoleptic properties: straw yellow colour; fine fruity and grassy nose, with Mediterran maquis finish. Medium body, balanced, soft and very fresh and tasty.

Food pairing: ideal with fishes and Apulian fresh pasta filata cheeses. This wine is elegantly texture and vividly mineral.

Francesco Valentino Dibenedetto, agronomist and farmer by birth, son of Carlo Dibenedetto, winemakers always.

Since the 80’s the company began the conversion to organic farming but he finds that the vitality of his lands does not proceed as it should and that is why since 2000 he moved to biodynamic thanks to the studies on Rudolf Steiner’s cultural legacy.
After a few years of biodynamic he realizes that there is still something that lacks and therefore, understanding the thought of Masanobu Fukuoka, finally come to practice sustainable agriculture, in which the synergies between all the ecosystem are linked. This is the synergistic agriculture, with which we made no more the biggest mistake that still today we do, practicing all the other types of agriculture ( from conventional, to organic, to biodynamic): plowing.
This new adventure develops together with his wife Anna Maria and their four children: Carlo Nazareno, Domenico, Andrea e Maria Clelia. Thaks to their constant and responsible care it has been possible to build the wine cellar, entirely made in tuff, where with precise climatic conditions it’s possible to enhance their precious grapes without using chemicals. The new generation’s entrance in the company, under the leadership of Francesco Valentino’s large experience, is likely to provide impetus and vitality to “L’Archetipo”.
