Cellar for up to 4 years. Serve chilled.

Located near the modest town of Gioia del Colle in south-east Puglia, Polvanera winery was founded by Filippo Cassano in 2003. Cassano’s project was a way to return to his family’s historic viticultural roots and he decided to name the venture after the “polvanera” or “black dust” which characterises the local soils. All of Cassano’s vineyards are farmed organically to produce the best fruit possible and the plots sit at an altitude of 300-450 metres which ensures his opulent, full-flavoured wines are balanced with plenty of freshness.

Although Puglia is best known for its powerful red wines crafted from the local Primitivo grape, Cassano’s Minutolo shows off the potential of the region’s white wines. This crisp white is crafted from 100% Fiano vinified in stainless steel tanks to preserve the pure natural character of the grape and plenty of mouthwatering freshness.

Delicate hints of bergamot, crisp citrus, peach and apricot define the nose while the palate is bright and clean with ripe stone fruit flavours accented with zesty grapefruit and chamomile notes. The light body and racy acidity make this a fantastic partner for seafood, sushi and most fish dishes, although it is equally at home served as a refreshing aperitif.
