The bouquet is intense and delicate with attractive hints of fruit and flowers while the flavor is fresh, soft and persistent.

Verdeca is an indigenous variety of Puglia that screams summertime. Grown in vineyards just off the sea, you can almost taste the seaside in this vibrant, mineral white. Petraluce refers to the light-colored stones that litter the vineyards and reflect the sun’s intense Puglian heat.

The grapes ripen and are picked in September. After crushing and soft-pressing, they ferment at a controlled temperature in steel vats. The wine then ages on its lees until the beginning of February; this is followed by bottling and further aging in the bottle for 2 months.
