The “Malvasia Bianca” wine is made in purity from the vine, whose name seems to derive from that of a Greek city of Morea, Monembasia, whose literal meaning is harbour with an only one entrance. The name, later degenerated into Malfasia, was then italianized in Malvasia.
The same name "Malvasia" refers to several varieties that do not have a common denominator: for this reason we prefer to speak of Malvasias.
The “Malvasia Bianca” of Lama di Luna, vinified in stainless steel tanks for 4-6 months and then in bottle, comes with bright yellow color, with greenish tints and the aroma is reminiscent of a complex floral bouquet with clear hints of lime and citrus.
The taste is full and round, very persistent, with a typical local minerality.
NERO DI TROIA 2008
Our wine Nero di Troia is made from grapes that carry the same name, cultivated in the “San Giorgio” vineyard, near Canosa di Puglia. The legend says that the grapevine arrived in Southern Italy, specifically in Puglia, more that two thousands years ago carried along by the war heroes Diomede, that after the Troy war, left Asia and landed in Puglia. He planted the grapevine on the Ofanto, and from its plants the Uva di Troia was born. For decades the wine made by the Nero di Troia grapes has been used as blending wine, and only in the last years it has been rediscovered in its purity, showing great fragrances and unique tasting notes.
The "Nero di Troia 2008" of Lama di Luna, after an initial fermentation in steel vats, is aged for 10-12 months in new barrels of French oak come from 5 different forests with different toasting, and then for another 9 months in the bottle. This wine shows a brilliant ruby red color, the aroma is characterized by notes of fruits of black berry, cocoa and licorice, and the taste is full and harmonious, elegant and refined with hints of coriander and sandalwood, typical of a “Nero di Troia”.
