bianco-di-pitigliano-undiwineThe Bianco di Pitigliano is an up-and-coming DOC white wine produced in Pitigliano and the municipalities of Manciano, Scansano and Sorano.

THE WINE:

This white wine is so characteristic because it is the product of centuries of wine making history. The wine cellars in Pitigliano were carved into the tuff base of the city in prehistoric times and definitely add something to the modern wines.
