Bosco Eliceo Bianco DOC is a white wine produced in Emilia-Romagna with Trebbiano Emiliano grapes. It is a wine with a certain personality, due above all to the very particular terroir of the production area. Depending on the residual sugar it is available in the dry version (without residual sugar), abboccato (a little sweet), amabile (a little more sweet) or sweet; moreover, depending on the vinification method it can be still or semi-sparkling.
It belongs to the designation Bosco Eliceo DOC, which is unique in the Italian panorama: its wines are often called “sand wines”, because of the particular territory where they are produced. It is in fact a stretch of coastline between the mouth of the river Po and the city of Ravenna that is affected by the proximity to the Adriatic Sea: salt water, the breeze rich in iodine and the mainly sandy alluvial soil - hence the name “sand wines” - contribute to the production of wines that are known for their liveliness and corpulent flavor.
The color is straw yellow; on the nose there are floral scents, like acacia flowers, flanked by a clear minerality; the taste goes from dry to sweet depending on the residual sugar, it is not very intense and savory.
Bosco Bianco DOC Eliceo goes well with dishes based on fish, cappelletti (a kind of pasta similar to tortellini) or passatelli (a kind of pasta). Ideal also as a fresh aperitif.
