This gold colored wine produced from a selection of Zibibbo grapes has an intense aroma on the nose with perfumes of lemon, orange blossom, acacia and honey, and is long and full on the palate. Nicely chilled it will be perfect as an aperitif or a delicious pairing for blue cheese, fruit tarts and lemon sorbets.
The vineyard is located in Western Sicily, near Castellammare, just east of Marsala at about 350 metres a.s.l.. They are planted east facing following the vertical trellis system on sandy and clay rich soil and guyot pruning.
After skin maceration for 12 hours, grapes are subject to soft pressing and fermentation at controlled temperature (17° - 18° C.). Wine Distillate is then added up to approx. 16° to stop the fermentation process and preserve most of the must’s sugars.
