Twenty to 30-year-old vines are planted to south-facing vineyards 80 meters above sea level in volcanic soil with white sand and chalk deposits. The fruit was handpicked and the skins were gently broken. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks and lined vats. After 20 days of regular punching down and topping of the cap, the wine underwent an initial blending and spent 12 to 14 months aging in French barriques, with a second blending at first racking. The wine was then aged for another six months in bottle prior to release.

Sicily saw what could be described as the “perfect summer” in 2017. Rainfall was at a minimum and temperatures were not as hot as normal. These elements made for a perfect maturation, giving the white varietals a great balance and structure.
Intense ruby red color. The bouquet exhibits a great balance between the floral notes where the orange peel is well integrated with spiced notes of Indian herbs. On the palate it is fresh, complex, and persistent. The acidic components are significant and gives the wine a long life in bottle.
A superb match for full-flavored meats and game, especially stews and roasts.
