Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)

Casa d'Ambra is one of the great wine estates of Italy and represents a gem of viticulture found on the tiny island of Ischia off the coast of Naples. These vineyards are located on the volcanic cliffs of the island that rise up to a dramatic 600 meters above sea level. The scenery is absolutely stunning with trellised vines overlooking an azure seascape.
The 2018 Casa D
Ambra Frassitelli is an absolutely exceptional expression of Biancolella. These grapes are grown in a four-hectare vineyard on a steep cliff overlooking the Mediterranean at 600 meters above sea level: this is "extreme viticultureā€, given the hardships of harvesting in these difficult conditions. The wine is fermented in stainless steel for 8 months.
Frassitelli, from 100% Biancolella grapes, certainly the most celebrated in Ischia and among the most performing in the entire Campania region, is a white wine of great class and elegance. It shows a straw-yellow color with golden reflections. The nose opens with a complex bouquet of aromatic herbs, rosemary, thyme, medlar, white currant, and broom, followed by saline notes. In the mouth, it shows greedily sapid, with a round but slender body towards a long finish of honey. Excellent served with appetizers and first courses based on fish, such as linguini with prawns.
