Commentary: Pallagrello Bianco is an extremely rare white native grape saved from extinction by a handful of willing producers in the late 90’s: the total current production of Pallagrello Bianco in Italy is around 100,000 bottles. Selvanova Pallagrello is crisp and mineral with lots of wild herbs and fresh almonds notes
