L’Archetipo Puglia Litrotto Bianco is a blend of four indigenous grapes to Puglia, citrus and melon flavors, bright acidity, lush texture, and an herbal finish. After destemming and soft crushing the blend of grapes, the must ferments spontaneously thanks to a pied de cuve of native yeasts, the only ones that increase the expression of the terroir. After 2 months at the end of alcoholic fermentation, the must is soft pressed in order to separate it from grape skins. Natural fining and stabilization, no fining agents added. No filtration. A very low addition of sulfur at bottling.

About L’Archetipo

Francesco Valentino Dibenedetto, a farmer from birth and later also agronomist, since the ’80s began to convert his land to organic farming, but he observed that the vitality of his lands was not like he was supposed to be. That is why in 2000 he implemented biodynamic farming thanks to his studies on Rudolf Steiner’s cultural legacy. After a few years of biodynamics, he realized that there was still something that could be done. Francesco Valentino studied Masanobu Fukuoka’s thought and finally, he implemented sustainable agriculture, in which all synergies in the ecosystem are linked: Synergistic Agriculture. This one incorporates organic and biodynamic agriculture, but it also deletes plowing, which is considered a wrong practice. The family farm (wife Annamaria, three sons Carlo Nazareno, Domenico,  Andrea, and a daughter Maria Clelia) are based in Puglia, in the upper Salento, on the border with Basilicata and the province of Bari. In these precise climatic conditions, it is possible to enhance the valuable owned grapes without chemicals, cultivating native vines such as Primitivo, Aglianico, Negroamaro, Fiano, and Greco and rediscovering forgotten vines such as Maresco, Marchione, and Susumaniello.
