TENUTA SERRANOVA White Wine Fiano I.G.P. Salento

It often happens that we think of the illustrious people who preceded us as owners of the estate; from Raimondo del Balzo Orsini, Prince of Taranto, owner of the estate from 1382 to 1407, to Queen Maria d’Enghien, Countess of Lecce, owner from 1407 to 1464. Please refer to the dedicated section for further historical notes on the Serranova Castle. The intense red of the lands reveals a first clue about the oenological orientation of the estate’s wines.

This is the place where you can glimpse the characterizing elements of Vallone; the noble soul of the wines, the innovative soul that led to the conception of the Graticciaia production technique; the soul that embraces the harmony and beauty generated by the union between the historicity of places and nature. The elegant minerality characterizes this wine whose grapes come from a vineyard tenaciously anchored to the red soils of the Castello di Serranova estate. The sensorial picture is completed by the proximity of the vineyard to the Adriatic Sea which involuntarily gives the characteristic flavor of Fiano Vallone.
