From the Producer:
"Our winery is located on the beautiful island of Ischia, off the coast of Campania, in the Bay of Naples. Founded in 1888, the Casa d'Ambra winery has been (and continues to be) a family affair. Francesco d'Ambra, originally from Calabria, founded the estate, but it was his son, Mario, who established Casa d'Ambra as the authority on Ischian wines from cultivating its unique, native grapes. Today, winemaker and enologist (and nephew of Mario) Andrea d'Ambra runs the estate, managing not only the winery's own vineyards but also the small group of dedicated, local farmers who help to grow grapes for the winery."
Now helmed by the third consecutive generation of women winemakers.
Delicious and polished with white floral and gooseberry aromatics, and for an island wine, surprising fullness on the palate with notes of nectarine, orange, herbs and a salty, mineral-laden finish. A great alternative for fans of Santorini or Etna Bianco.
