While Biancolella is a native darling of the small island of Ischia, it is rumored to have been brought from Greece way way back in the 700s BCE. Whatever odyssey brought Biancolella here, the grape is now truly synonymous with Ischia’s best, (and highest!) vineyards. Complex, aromatic, full-bodied and yet fresh and crisp, Biancolella is not an acid-riptide but more of a saline seaspray. It can be found blended with the likes the ancient local Falaghina, fellow island siren Forastera or smaller Amalfi Coast natives like Pepella to create bright and quenching delicious Uber-Meditteranean wines.
