The Antinori Tomaresca Castel del Monte Pietrabianca is a wine produced in Bocca di Lupo, in an Apulian estate founded and managed by the Antinori family. The name derives from the white stone, a construction material present in large quantities in Puglia. The wine is produced from native Apulian vines: Chardonnay and Fiano grapes, in small part, fermented in wood and steel, respectively.

The Antinori Tomaresca Castel del Monte Pietrabianca is one chardonnay obtained from the soft pressing of the grapes, which are then left to rest in stainless steel tanks at 10 ° C. The chardonnay is then placed in oak barriques, where it ferments at a controlled temperature, ending the process on lees. The Fiano instead undergoes fermentation in stainless steel, at 16 ° C, to enhance its acidity. The wine finishes its aging in the bottle for a period of 5 months. The contrast between the two different maturations makes the wine perfectly balanced, as it is a combination of taste full of the wood and the freshness of the grapes vinified in steel. The flavor is fresh, citrus and sour fruit, accompanied by the sapidity of maturation in Oak barrels. The wine, with its delicate contrast, is perfect to accompany white meat dishes, fish and light main courses: it will be able to allow the tasting of food with freshness and genuineness, given the balanced acidity of this product. Intense straw yellow with greenish reflections. Fruity with hints of white peach and exotic fruits, with well-blended vanilla notes of wood. Soft entry, good persistence and structure. Savory wine with good acidity and freshness.
