WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
It is a fresh, fruity white wine that is very enjoyable to drink
Antonio De Quarto makes Folium exclusively from estate-grown Fiano grapes in Salento. Harvesting takes place in the first decade of August, prematurely given the early and very sunny summers typically found in Puglia, and exclusively by hand in order to select only the best bunches. Fermentation is not aided by synthetic products but occurs completely naturally, for a white wine that smells of Salento.
To the nose it is delicate and floral: Folium in Latin in fact means petal, precisely because of the particular fragrances of this wine.
To the taste it gives freshness and is pleasantly fruity.
In the kitchen it goes well with all kinds of fish typical of Salento: from shellfish to seafood to baked fish; it also suits white meats, dishes with seasonal vegetables and soft cheeses.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in affirming that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it gives to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
