Crateca bianco is the result of a blend of biancolella and forastera with a wise and thoughtful addition of fiano and greco grapes. The wine, elegant to drink, is a harmonious expression of the varietal traits of the different vines, enhanced by the fine mineral note typical of the volcanic area. The brightness and intense golden yellow color anticipate a perfume rich in ample shades of yellow flowers, canned fruit, pineapple and apricot, refreshed by citrus and Mediterranean scrub hints. The mouth is soft, savory, with an inviting acid vein and good body.
