Produttori di Manduria Alice Verdeca 

In the heel of Italy, Manduria is considered the birthplace of the native Primitivo grape and was officially recognized as such in the 1970s when a DOC was created for the region. However, Produttori di Manduria had been making wines for 40 years by then, unashamedly proud of their deep affection for Primitivo.

As well as making high-quality examples of Puglia's most famous vinous export, the co-operative is well versed in producing fascinating whites from Fiano and Verdeca. But it is with the poetically titled Elegia that the extraordinary levels of quality come to light. Made from old bush vines up to 50 years old it creates a wine of intense dark berry fruit with wonderful balsamic endnotes and excellent balance.

This rare variety of native grape is picked from 15 to 20-year-old espalier trained vines in the middle of September yielding around 100 quintals (4500kg) per hectare.

Straw yellow in color the nose shows aromatic white flowers mixed with citrus notes as well as pear and pineapple. Dry on the palate this is fresh and mineral-like. Incredible with baked pastries, and croissants, but anything with acidity/ lemon flavors.
