The grapes for Cipollina Bianco come from Puglia, the picturesque heel of Italy, where they benefit from the Ionian sea breezes and fossil-rich soils. A bright and breezy white with citrus and perfumed apple blossom on the nose. The palate has ripe citrus and peach with an undercurrent of fresh herbs and a zesty fresh finish.
"Exclusively blended for Corney & Barrow, primarily using indigenous grapes, Cipollina shows off Puglia’s easy-going charm with a zesty, fruity and bright white wine."
It is hard to imagine a more exciting or varied wine-producing country than Italy. With a vibrant winemaking history spanning over 2,000 years, and vineyards stretching from the Alps through the Appenine mountains to Sicily, the Italian peninsula is home to an enormous range of climates, topographies and soil typeshosting hundreds of distinctive grapes unique to Italy.
