Bisceglia Falanghina Basilicata IGT Terra di Vulcano 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A relative newcomer to the Italian wine scene, Bisceglia is quickly gaining a reputation as a name to watch, quickly picking up two prestigious Tri Biccheri awards from the Gambero Rosso and having another of their wines labelled as Italy's best Syrah by the same organisation. The winery is located in the beautiful hill town of Lavello (birthplace of Horace, he of "Nunc est Bibendum fame") in the sparse, wild region of Basilicata. Visiting it is like stepping back in time. You can drive for hours and not see another car. The food is rustic and regional. The people are open and honest. The only modern building you'll see is Bisceglia's state of the art winery. Biscgelia's 35ha of estate vines are all farmed organically and the grapes in the immaculate vineyards are only harvested when fully ripe. The Vulcano Falanghina is a crisp, balanced white wine that displays exceptional balance, with a refreshing, savoury character. Similar in style to a Pinot Grigio, it shows a gentle fruit character, hay and will go perfectly with seafood, pasta and white fish.

Bisceglia Brothers Wine Co.:
The Bisceglia Estate was founded in 2001 by Mario Bisceglia who left his position in the corporate food world and returned to his land to commit his efforts to producing fine sustainably produced wine. The vineyard is situated in the beautiful district of Lavello on the lower slopes of the extinct volcano, Mount Vulture.
