Lazio Bianco IGT “Fieno di Ponza” 2018 – Antiche Cantine Migliaccioby Valentino Minotti
From the vineyards of Biancolella di Ponza and Forestera, the Fieno di Ponza is born, in one of the most evocative viticultural contexts in the world. The wine is characterized by notes of mimosa, broom, cinnamon, citrus, pear and white plum. The taste is fresh, mineral and with intense fruity aromas.
The Fieno di Ponza Migliaccio is a bland Biancolella and Forestera. The vineyards are located south of the island of Ponza (LT) facing to the south. The soil is tufaceo, predominately of sands and volcanic origin offering to the Fieno di Ponza Migliaccio a unique flavour.
Emanuele Vittorio, together with his wife Luciana Sabino, gave life to the “Antiche Cantine Migliaccio” farm in 2000 which, preserving the ancient traditions but using modern winemaking techniques, availing some years of the oenologist Vincenzo Mercurio’s professionalism, produces wines that we can define “unique”, thanks to the pedoclimatic conditions of this magical place. Punta Fieno is one of the few unspoilt places on the island of Ponza. The difficult access by land (40 minutes on foot along a mule track in full Mediterranean scrub) a non-existent landing by sea, which consists of jumping from the boat on the rocks, have preserved this place from mass tourism. The old peasant farmers went there every morning at dawn to cultivate the vineyards, but today there are only a few lefts: Luigino, Giustino, uncle Aniello and Liberato. To this small group was added Emanuele Vittorio, a Neapolitan odontologist, son of Civita Migliaccio, but above all nephew of Benedetto Migliaccio, one of the founders of the Hay.
