Casale del Giglio Bellone Bianco
Bellone is an ancient grape varietal believed to have been cultivated way back in the Roman times. Now grown almost exclusively in Lazio, this grape does best near the sea, making the small coastal town of Anzio the perfect place to cultivate this lively grape. The persistent sea breeze of the region contributes to the over-ripening of the grapes resulting in rich notes of tropical fruits like papaya and mango that are found in this 100% Bellone white, balanced by a pronounced minerality and zesty tang that lingers on the palate after each sip. Enjoy with pasta dishes, Vignarola (Roman braised spring veggies), aged Pecorino Romano and cured meats, or shrimp ceviche with avocado.
