Description

This white grape variety of uncertain origin has found its highest expression in Apulian hills, specifically around the Valle d’Itria where the dry climate, high altitude and excellent sunlight exposure allow the production of a fresh, intense and full-bodied wine.

GRAPE VARIETY: Bianco d’Alessano

APPELLATION: Valle d’Itria IGP

PRODUCTION AREA: high altitude vineyards (350 m a.s.l. or 1,148 feet) in the Itria Valley, central Puglia.

TRAINING SYSTEM: traditional puglian bush vines

SOIL: calcareous – clay

PLANT DENSITY AND YIELD: 4500 plants per hectare and 1.8 kg of grapes per plant

HARVEST: manual harvest, between late September and early October.

VINIFICATION: bunches are left overnight at sub-zero temperature (20-hour cryomaceration). The grapes then are destemmed and pressed; a short cold maceration follows and a subsequent soft pressing of the skins. The fermentation is carried out at low temperature to preserve aromas and freshness.

Cantine Paololeo

If it is true that behind every bottle of wine there is always a nice story to tell, the one of Paololeo wines is a simple but beautiful story, just like all the family stories are.

Today Paololeo winery is a modern company: it covers an area of 17,000 square meters and is equipped with a very modern winemaking system, a large barrel room and a cutting-edge bottling line capable of bottling  7000 bottles per hour.

However, the "heart" of all the current area under vines are still those 25 hectares where, at the beginning of the twentieth century, the great-grandfather began to vinify his grapes in Masseria Monticello. Then his nephew Paolo Leo inherited the land and built the winery.

Today it is still an heir, the namesake Paolo Leo, son of Nicola, to lead the new winery, together with his wife Roberta and his eldest sons Nicola and Stefano, who are paving the way for the younger brothers Francesco and Alessandro.
