Vigneti del Vulture “Pipoli” Greco-Fiano Basilicata IGT
50% Greco and 50% Fiano. Vigneti del Vulture “Pipoli” Greco-Fiano Basilicata IGT is pale lemon yellow, while the nose has notes of citrus, pear, and melon with a hint of spice. A zesty refreshing finish.
Here white varieties such as Greco and Fiano are cultivated on soils of volcanic origin and, thanks to the climate with great temperature swings, their minerality and floral notes are exalted in this terroir. The result is an aromatic wine with a great personality.
