Panascio Bombino Bianco Castel del Monte DOC
Puglia
The Bombino bianco is one of the most ancient and cultivated grapes of Southern Italy, especially Puglia. While closely related to Bombino nero, this grape is not a color mutation, but a different variety. One of its synonyms is “Pagadebit”, because of its high yielding potential, that would assure farmers to pay off their debts on each vintage. Panascio is the name given by the Ceci family to the parcel of land where the vineyard lies.
