A Mano Bianco

Fiano gives the A Mano Bianco white peach and floral perfumes, Falanghina adds citrus blossom aromas and Verdeca lends a grapefruit character.

The A Mano Bianco palate is complex and zesty, with well balanced acidity and lovely body, citrus notes continue on the finish.

Mark Shannon and Elvezia Sbalchiero, the duo behind A Mano, have worked in the wine business for most of their lives. http://www.amanowine.com/

Elvezia is a northern Italian wine marketing expert and Mark is a Californian winemaker. They fell in love with Puglia and, when they decided to start their own label, made it their home.

By producing wines of quality, Mark and Elvezia have succeeded in making Primitivo one of Italy’s most talked about grape varieties.

They pay high prices for the best grapes from 70-100 year old vines and focus solely on quality and a modern style.

Part of the reason for the continued success of A Mano is the greater knowledge that Mark and Elvezia have after almost a decade of vintages (the first was as a consultant for another company) in the region.

Not only are they getting access to Salento’s best grapes, but their growers have also come to realise that if they want the higher price paid by A Mano, they need to provide even better grapes than in previous years.

The quality of the grapes shines through in the resulting wines.

The vineyards are situated in Valle d’Itria, in the heart of Puglia.

The valley provides a constant airflow from the Adriatic sea to the warmer interior regions of Puglia.

The fresh breezes lower the night time temperatures, encouraging the development of the lovely perfumes in the grapes. The soils are well-drained on a soft rock base.

This wine is made from the Fiano Minutolo clone from Puglia, which resembles Riesling or Viognier, as opposed to the Fiano di Avellino which is used to make the DOC wines from Campania.

The Verdeco grapes are grown in a very old, non-irrigated sandy hillside vineyard.
