Terre degli Svevi Basilicata Bianco is a versatile and appealing white made from a combination of Muller Thurgau and Traminer Aromatico. The colour is light and summery, with an intensely aromatic nose of apple and ripe yellow fruit with hints of jasmine and fragrant summer herbs like sage. When you drink the wine those lovely aromatic qualities carry through, and the wine is wonderfully fresh. There is a tiny hint of residual sugar which just lifts this wine out of 'dry', making it extremely drinkable and a great match for sushi!
The combination of the grapes used makes this a fascinating wine. Müller Thurgau and Traminer Aromatico, varieties typical in the north are now very much at home in the Basilicata terroir. Volcanic soils and exceptional temperature ranges bring the aromatic profile of the grapes to the fore, imprinting Re Manfredi Bianco with its inimitable, appealing style. So versatile, perfect as an aperitif but also served with a fish-based dinner.
