Bocca di Lupo Pietrabianca 2022

Bocca di Lupo Pietrabianca is an elegant white wine made from Chardonnay, with a small percentage of the indigenous Fiano grape variety. The wine is crafted at the Bocca di Lupo estate in the heart of Apulia’s Murgia area, and its name was inspired by the territory. 'Pietrabianca' refers to the stones that rural farmers hit while ploughing the fields and, once they were crushed and ground into the soil, helped enhance the aromas and flavours of the wines grown here. After destemming, the grapes were gently crushed, and the must was transferred into stainless steel tanks to favour natural clarification. Part of the Chardonnay must was then transferred into French oak barriques where alcoholic fermentation took place, followed by malolactic fermentation and aging on the lees. The Fiano grapes and the remaining Chardonnay grapes, were fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature to enhance its characteristic freshness. In January, the Chardonnay aged in barriques was transferred to stainless steel tanks, blended with Fiano and the other part of Chardonnay, then bottled several months later. The wine underwent an additional period of aging in the bottle before being released. The resulting wine is bright yellow with greenish highlights. The nose delivers tropical notes of pineapples and lychees together with hints of orange and peach blossoms. The complex bouquet is completed by citrusy, fresh sensations accompanied by aromas of hazelnuts and vanilla. Lively on the palate with excellent freshness and structure. Pleasantly savoury on the finish. Pietrabianca can be enjoyed immediately but can also age well to be appreciated in the years to come.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
