Facts about this wine

Storage potential: No saving potential

Locorotondo DOC is a dry white wine, made from the rarely seen Verdeca grape (50-60%) and Bianco d’Alessano (30-50%), Fiano and/or Bombino, Malvasia Toscana (0-5%). The wine is grown around the city of Locorotondo, in the Itria Valley.

Often, Locorotondo DOC is perceived as the best Apulian white wine and undoubtedly, it has great qualities: a pleasant, subtle and fruity taste, with an almond-like aftertaste, which makes it excellent for fish dishes.

The color is light straw green and if the wine originates from certain producers, including the local CS Cooperativa Locorotondo, its quality is truly exceptional.  Unfortunately, some producers make almost tasteless versions of this glorious white wine.

On the same grapes, there is also produced a sparkling Locorotondo Spumante DOC.
