||90% Catarratto Bianco Comune, 10% Chardonnay
||Black soil: rich in silt-clay substances, compact and resistant to drought.
||After a cryomaceration, the grapes are soft pressed and thanks to the indigenous and spontaneous yeasts the fermentation start and continue during 20 days at controlled temperature. Only at this point Catarratto and Chardonnay are blended, becoming the blend of Ludovico's White.
||Follow 6 months of aging on the lees with 2 batonnage per week. For the next 6 months, half of the wine ages in oak French barrels, half in steel. Once the wine is blended again, stay another 6 months in steel sur lies and at least 4 months in bottle.
||It goes well with lots of Mediterranean dishes, as cous cous, grilled fish, oysters and shellfish.
