Presentation of the vineyard
The vineyard "Vinosia" is a relatively young project which started by the two brothers Mario and Luciano Ercolino. However, the two brothers Ercolino are not novice in what concerns wine making, since they are from the same family that started the well-known vineyard Feudi di San Gregorio in the Campania wine region. Mario was actually at that time responsible for the winemaking. In 2003, they starded the project "Vinosia" which means "A new source for wine." The vineyard is located in Luogosano, in the middle of Italy, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Adriatic coast at the same level as Napoli. Mario is responsible for the winemaking with the same commitment as within Feudi and produces southern Italian quality wines with a lot of personality.
A light straw yellow color. Fruity nose with hints of tropical fruits with some vegetal tones. The palate is fresh and has alsohints of exotic fruit (mango) and almonds. The finale is round and harmonious with some notes of honey. To serve as an aperitif, to pair with sea lobster, chicken fillets and half done cheeses.
