2022 Bianco del Campo
This Italian white wine blend comes from 3.8 acres of young vines planted in 2018. 43% Vermentino, 30% Fiano, 16% Biancolella and 11% Falanghina, fermented and aged in concrete and stainless steel tanks with no malo-lactic to preserve freshness and acidity.
The vermentino is a clone from Liguria. The clusters and berries are small compared to our original Vermentino vineyard block. It produces a wine that is not as exotically fruity, with more mineral and spice, which is common in Liguria.The fiano, falanghina and biancolella comes from the Foundation Plant Service nursery at UC Davis. Fiano and falanghina are fruity with great natural acidity, while the biancolella is a bit softer.
It all adds up to a a fruity, dry and crisp white wine ; perfect for everyday, especially in the summer. Our Bianco is a blend you would never see, since it is a blend of Central and Southern Italian grapes. However, in California we can experiment with unconventional blends to make a wine that will have you thinking of the Amalfi Coast. It is a glimpse into the future of white wine in California.
