Casale del Giglio Bellone is a beautiful white wine gem from the Lazio region of Italy. Bellone is a grape variety cited by Pliny the Elder and present in the Latium region since Roman times. Today the grape is cultivated from the Roman to the Lepini hills and beyond to the hinterland of the coastal town of Anzio, where, in warm sandy soils tempered by a relentless sea breeze, the grape has found an ideal microclimate.
Casale del Giglio Bellone is deep yellow flecked with gold. The wine evokes sunshine and ripe tropical fruit such as mango and papaya, carefully balanced by a marked acidity which makes it suitable for long bottle aging. Rich, ample and lingering on the palate with light floral and spicy notes. Hallmarked by its pronounced acidity and zesty tang, it offers a long finish.
Enjoy Casale del Giglio Bellone with "Minestra di Sgavajone," a typical soup from the fishermen of Anzio made with "sgavajone," a local fish rarely found outside their family homes.
