The Il Bianco is a blend of the best fruit from our estate vineyards. The grapes are sourced from 25 year old vines grown in soils particularly rich with fossilized shells and oysters. The grapes are fermented separately and carefully blended. Il Bianco di Decugnano is a wine of great elegance, well balanced and very mineral: the best expression of Decugnano’s terroir.
