Bianco di Ampeleia IGT Costa Toscana

2018

The 1st vintage of Bianco di Ampeleia was 2016. A neighbor's vineyard had old vines of a local biotype of Trebbiano Toscano; Ampeleia used its cuttings and starting planting in 2013, between Ampeleia di Mezzo and Ampeleia di Sopra (300-600m with varied soil composition). The vineyards were planted to 90% Trebbiano, 5% Ansonaco (aka Ansonica aka Inzolia), and 5% Malvasia.  In true field-blend fashion, the three varieties are interspersed through the vineyard.  The grapes were co-harvested at yields of 50hl/ha in mid-September and co-fermented in concrete vats, with 7-10 days contact with the skins. It aged on its lees for 6 months in concrete.  12,000 bottles made.
