Segreto di Bianca – Fiano

This wine is dedicated to Bianca Schiavoni. If the tales are to be believed, this wine was particularly enjoyed by Bianca, wife of the noble Don Tommaso (who first planted Primitivo di Manduria in the region). Living in the more rural farm areas, away from courts and courtiers, it is said that the wine made her happier and helped her to moderate her solitude. Fortunately we live in a time when one can enjoy a glass of wine and just be ‘happy’ without ascribing medicinal properties or another euphemistic turn of phrase.
