How we made this wine
The vineyards where we grow the grapes to Casa Marrone Appassimento Bianco are intensely green with a thick foliage. We keep the leaves on the vine to protect the grapes from the sun. This is extra important when it comes to white wine grape varieties, since their skin is thin and delicate. It is also a natural way to prolong the growing season. So that the aromatics of mandarine, peach, pineapple and white flowers can develop in the grapes over an extended period of time.
When the sea breezes from the Adriatic coast turn slightly cooler, it is time to think of the harvest. We begin to taste the grapes in the second week of August. At this point they have a fruity and juicy character that we will try to capture in each glass of Casa Marrone Appassimento Bianco. Now, to start the appassimento process, we leave the grapes to dry for one week and up to 10 days. During this time the grapes lose about 15–20 % of their weight. Aromas, acidity and sugars concentrate before the grapes are harvested and brought to the winery.
The Malvasia Bianca, Trebbiano and Chardonnay grapes are then fermented carefully at a low temperature to maintain the fresh and fruity characteristics. Before it is time to put the wine inside the bottle, it will spend a few months of ageing in stainless steel. Finally, we seal each bottle by hand with the traditional spago.
