This estate was founded in 1968 by Vittorio Colacino, a doctor who grew grapes and made wine in his spare time. The property is located 20 kilometres south of Cosenza near the town of Rogliano and is now run by his son Mauro. The wines are made under the watchful eye of Nicola Tucci, ex Farnese and now a partner in Spanish producer Cien y Pico...
The wines are pristine, scented and beautifully balanced.
The unique microclimate of the River Savuto valley is situated in the municipality of Marzi near Cosenza. There are 21 hectares of vineyards, located at approximately 500 metres above sea level. The vineyards are well ventilated allowing the grapes to develop expressive perfumes. The vines are trained using the Guyot training system.
Harvest took place in early September.
The grapes were carefully selected and hand picked. On arrival at the winery, the grapes were gently pressed. Temperature controlled fermentation then took place with regular pumping over to extract flavour compounds from the skins. The wine was then racked off into stainless steel vats where it remained until bottling. Once bottled, the wine was aged for a further two months before release.
Pale yellow in colour, with expressive perfumes which give the wine a vibrant, white pear character. Citrus and pineapple notes with good acidity lent to the blend by the Pecorello.
20% Greco Bianco
