At Cignomoro it is very consciously about the choices they make and have made. They consciously chose Puglia, consciously for the vineyards and to grow their vines there. They chose this because they believe that they can make wine that speaks here. The power of the sun, wind and sea ensures that every sip is unique. They chose the “red lands” between Manduria and Carosino. With the latest vinification techniques, without forgetting the value of a family winery, they ensure that the wines of Cignomoro can be counted among the best in Puglia.

The healthy ripe grapes are crushed and fermented in small containers at a uniform and regulated temperature. Soaking on the skins for more than a month. Maceration in stainless steel tanks. Six months in new medium-toasted French oak barriques; than 4 months in bottles for further refinement.

The Cignomoro is a 100% Bianco di Alessano. This white grape comes from Puglia (The 'heel' of Italy) and it can thrive in poor soils. It has traditionally grown there as well as in Calabria. It therefore fits perfectly with the dry areas of the hills of the Valle d'Itria.

The grapes for the Cignomoro 30 Vecchie Vigne Old Vines Bianco di Alessano receive a soft pressing and the must is fermented in barriques and is further developed in these barriques for 4 months. Thus, to form a harmonious unity, a fine woody aroma is combined with a multi-layered structure of the wine.

In the glass, this top white wine from Cignomoro is intense straw yellow with golden highlights. The bouquet is intense and refined with delicate notes of jasmine, blossoms and lingering fruit aromas of golden apple with tropical nuances, vanilla almonds and honey. The taste is full and round, with refreshing acidity and a light aftertaste. Delicious with goat cheese and poultry.
