The Azienda Agricola Tenuta Viglione has its origins in the old agricultural and viticultural traditions of Zullo’s family. They were moved by the desire to develop the huge winemaking potential of the area between the towns of Gioia del Colle (BA) and Santeramo in Colle (BA) in Puglia, and started producing fine wines here since decades. The company grows 370 acres of vineyards at the average altitude of 450 meters. The main varietal is Primitivo, but other indigenous grapes are grown, too as Verdeca, Falanghina, Fiano, Negroamaro and Nero di Troia. The organic method of agriculture and winemaking is certified since 2005.
The Falanghina grape is a variety thought to derive from the ancient Greek-Balkan strains and takes its name from the Italian “falanga”, the stake supporting the vines. It was almost abandoned, but after its vines survived the phylloxera, it gained prominence and went through a period of renaissance and it is now widely cultivated in Southern Italy.
It is capable of producing wines of real interest with pure, transparent white fruit aromas, often framed by a fine breadcrumb note from lees ageing. Falanghina comes in a variety of styles, from fresh easy drinking wines to serious, ageworthy and minerally samples at modest alcohol levels. Mature wines can even show a hint of petrol similar to that of aged Riesling.
