PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
The cuvées at the Vespa Winery and Estate in western Puglia are made by Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s most celebrated winemakers. Cotarella became one of the most influential Italian craftsmen during the mid-1990s when he had a hand in creating some of the country’s most highly rated and collectible wines in Tuscany and Umbria. Known as the “Magi” or “Wizard,” he was also one of the architects of the Italian wine renaissance that took shape in the early 2000s and continues to this day.*


Vespa is a small “boutique” winery with just 25 hectares of organic vineyards planted in the iron-rich red soils of Madurai. Thanks to these unique soils and the maritime influence of the nearby Ionian sea (a stone’s throw from the estate), Cotarella has been able to craft deeply-flavored expressions of the varietals that are planted here.* His fiano is pure magic!

The 2019 Vespa Il Bianco dei Vespa Fiano was sourced from estate vineyards in the Salento zone of Puglia. Upon harvest, the grapes were gently pressed and the must was fermented and aged for 4 months in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling. This wine did not spend any time in oak in order to preserve the freshness and fruit-driven character of the fiano varietal.

Fully realizing fiano's vast potential, today's wine offers fresh aromas of citrus fruits, spring flowers, and aromatic herbs. The palate is bright and zesty yet weighty and mouth-filling, with flavors of lime peel, peaches, and wet stone, with a long and lingering finish. This wine is immensely enjoyable on its own or paired with cheese and charcuterie platters, light pasta dishes, grilled fish, shellfish, roast chicken, and more.
