Don Francesco

The Aleatico has ancient origins and almost certainly owes its arrival in Italy and subsequent prevalence in Lazio, Tuscany and Puglia (and particularly in the Salento area and the province of Bari) to the Greeks. This grape is closely related to Moscato which, precisely because of its distinctive aroma and flavour, is also consumed in small quantities as a table grape.

In recent years, Aleatico has drawn renewed attention for its specific qualities and characteristics.

Vinification of these grapes produces wines with a brilliant ruby colour, violet hues, a velvety and elegant aroma, delicious fragrance and a taste characterised by lively and fresh fruity overtones.
