Morella is based in the Puglia wine region of Italy. The production is around 18 hl per hectare, which creates an absolute concentration of primary material, of highest quality which is the first and most important factor for any great wine. They use small open fermenters, hand plunging and a basket press to handle the grapes in the least aggressive manner, while allowing the maximum transfer of the grape characters to the wine.
A delicate bouquet of sweet white florals, lime zest and crushed rocks lifts up from the Bianco Mezzogiorno. It’s soft upon entry yet energized by bright acids that propel its ripe melon and citrus tones across a core of salty minerals. The finale is squeaky-clean and sculpted, tapering off to hints of raw almond and savory spice. The Mezzogiorno, a varietal Fiano, is wickedly fresh and very easy to like
