Asprinio

The name says it: asprinio, so "sour." A typical grape of Campania, in particular of the Aversa area, asprinio is one of the most acidic white grapes in Italy. It is still grown locally "maritata" to trees, i.e. letting the lianas of the vine latch on (“marry”), like in nature, to other plants. It gives a straw-yellow wine with clear greenish reflections, floral, citrusy and good sapidity. On the palate it borders on the acidulous, it has a very delicate structure and as an aperitif it expresses a decidedly satisfying drink. It also makes a great spumante base, while the more experimental versions of still white can guarantee a certain longevity in ageing.
