Experience the enchanting flavors of Umbria with Birbantéo, a stunning white wine from the esteemed Mevante Winery. This captivating Bianco is crafted from 100% local Trebbiano grapes, grown on sun-drenched hills in Bevagna at an elevation of 250 meters above sea level, boasting a Southeastern exposure.
The 15-year-old vines are meticulously tended using a pruned cordon training system, with a density of 5,200 plants per hectare. Harvested by hand in crates from the first week of October, each grape is carefully selected to ensure quality.
Following the manual harvest, Birbantéo undergoes vinification in steel tanks and matures on fine lees for approximately six months. The result is a beautiful straw-yellow hue with hints of green reflections. The bouquet offers delicate notes of white flowers, balsamic undertones, and white peach. On the palate, this wine presents a delightful roundness, smoothness, juiciness, and finesse.
