Bianco 'Carcare' Filippo Brancati 2022

Filippo Brancati

The "Carcare" is a Chardonnay-based white wine of great flavor and freshness that comes to life in Palizzi, in the southernmost area of Calabria. It consists of a very varietal olfactory profile with notes of prickly pear, Mediterranean herbs, citrus fruits and shades of the sea. A flickering freshness together with a clear marine imprint make the sip agile, light and slender

BIANCO 'CARCARE' FILIPPO BRANCATI 2022 DESCRIPTION

Filippo Brancati's Bianco 'Carcare' is a sunny, Mediterranean version of Chardonnay. The noble Burgundy grape variety has a remarkable ability to adapt to many terroirs and to interpret the different pedoclimatic characteristics plastically, transferring them faithfully into the glass. It expresses itself along the sunny shores of Calabria by accentuating its fruity richness and softness, offering dense aromas of yellow fruit and ripe citrus fruit. The rich, enveloping sip is satisfying and pleasantly persistent.

The 'Carcare' Bianco was born near Palizzi. Filippo Brancati runs an estate in the locality of Jannacci and produces wines with a typically artisanal character in an area particularly suited to viticulture. The Chardonnay grapes come from vineyards located on the southern side of the Ionian coast, at an altitude of about 250 metres above sea level, facing east and northeast. The vines are about ten years old and are cultivated on medium-textured soils, predominantly clayey. Harvesting is carried out manually during the second week of August, and the grapes are then subjected to a soft pressing. After cold decanting, the must ferments in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 13-15 °C. Before bottling, the wine matures sur lie in oak tonneaux for 5 to 6 months.

The Bianco 'Carcare' from the cellar of Filippo Brancati is a wine with a good structure, particularly suitable for important gastronomic pairings with fish dishes, white meats or a board of medium-aged cheeses. Light and luminous yellow in colour, it expresses an intense and rich bouquet, characterised above all by fruity aromas reminiscent of yellow-fleshed fruit, peach, pineapple, honeyed softness, delicately spicy hints, and nuances of citrus and aromatic herbs. It is large and enveloping on the palate, with a mouthfeel of ripe fruit that offers good taste complexity. The finish is harmonious, long and persistent, with savoury and pleasantly refreshing finish.
