Filippo: lively, fresh and fruity
versatile and lively – like Villa Caviciana
IGT Lazio Bianco
Filippo’s character is defined by two grape varieties – Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The former contributes body and full-bodied juiciness, the latter intense flavours and spiciness.
Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard in the township of Grotte di Castro, altitude 410 metres
Approx. four weeks of steel tank fermentation at a controlled temperature (16° bis 18° C)
Lengthy maturation of the young wine with a short time in the barrique and a longer time in steel tanks
Fresh, fruity, pronounced spiciness and mineral flavour due to the volcanic soil, the Sauvignon Blanc dominates the bouquet with herbs and fruit, grassy notes, considerable fullness with melting texture
Light fish dishes, grilled light meat, Thai curry or as an aperitif
Very good (three stars) in the International Summer Wines 2015 tasting competition of the gourmet magazine Selection, Silver (83 PAR points) at the International Organic Wine Award 2017
