NOTES FROM OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 characterized by an intense straw yellow colour;
👃🏻 on the nose, the aromas recall the spiciness of the maquis shrubland with hints of citrus and aromatics;
👄 on the palate it is dry, with a full, rounded and harmonious structure; it is a long lasting wine, bright and mediterranean, typically insular. In the end, there is a pleasant hint of tropical fruit.
Candidaterra is a spicy, harmonious wine with a full structure and a mediterranean character. This makes it a perfect match for fish-based first and second courses, where the savoury flavour contrasts perfectly with the aromatic persistence.
Pandataria derives from the ancient name of Ventotene, which means " provider of every good", to which the specification "il vino del confino" (the wine of confinement) was added, recalling that from 1930 the fascist regime used the island to confine political opponents.
The grapes are harvested in the first ten days of September and vinification takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks; maturation on the fine lees for 6 months is followed by refinement in the bottle for 2 months.
YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR..
its freshness and structure.
The farm is located on the island of Ventotene, in the province of Latina, in the Agro Pontino area. The area has a very old tradition in terms of wine. Illustrious testimonies are not lacking, even dating back to ancient Rome.
The altitude of the vineyards is between 40 and 463 m above sea level, with a variable slope, while the general exposure is west and south-west. The area has a mediterranean climate.
The combination of the nature of the soil and climatic factors make the area defined as DOC Cori a highly suitable area for the production of fine wines.
Founded in 2013, the winery owes its name Candidaterra to the island's patron saint, Santa Candida, but also to the desire to communicate absolute respect for the land - a white earth, without the use of chemicals - in compliance with the regulations that protect the Nature Reserve of the islands of Ventotene and Santo Stefano.
At present, the vineyard covers just 2 hectares (out of a total of 189 on the island) on land of volcanic origin, in the central area of the island, situated between 30 and 50 metres above sea level. The rows of greco, fiano and falanghina, planted between 2013 and 2016 and guyot-trained, face south for total and constant sunlight.
The Sportiello brothers, Luigi and Ercolino, take care of the entire production cycle: from cultivation of the vineyard to vinification, from processing in the cellar to bottling and subsequent marketing. But before the first vintage is bottled, the two brothers have had a long apprenticeship that has lasted for years.

Personalmente davvero un ottimo bianco, tanto al naso quanto al palato. Perfetto per un pranzo di pesce

vorrei ternerlo in cantina ancora per un po', fra un anno o due penso che darà il melgio di sè
Provato a più riprese ma non di mio gusto, forse bottiglia sfortunata
