White wines

Critone

Val di Neto

This wine is named after Crito, Socrates' favourite scholar. It is a blend of Chardonnay (90%) and Sauvignon Blanc (10%). These two grape varieties, perfectly naturalized in our Rosaneti and Critone estates, are joined to give birth to a fresh and savory wine, deep and lingering at the same time: our idea of an ​​international white.

White grape variety par excellence, it can be cultivated in a very different range of areas in terms of soil and climate. Calabria is an ideal setting for Chardonnay. Its wines show a nice level of acidity, with hints of tropical fruit and mulberry. Great richness of flavour, depth and length.
