Bright light yellow with pale hints of green. With a rich bouquet of tropical fruits, pink grapefruit and Mediterranean herbs it has a balanced structure with a crunchy acidity and salty finish.
Vineyards grow in Chirchiaro, between Salemi and Vita at 500 a.s.l.. The medium texture limestone-siliceous soil together with a good thermical range, ensure ideal conditions to enhance the characteristic of the varietals. Vines are planted facing East using the trellis system, and guyot pruning.
Due to a cold wet spring and the low temperatures during the beginning of summer, harvest has started almost 10 days later than usual, and has been down compared to recent years. On the other hand, quality has been exceptional, the plants were able to accumulate aromatic substances giving fragrant wines with rich and fruity aromas.
Hand-picked September 4th. De stemming and skin maceration for a few hours, and soft-pressed before fermentation takes place at 15°C in stainless-steel tanks. The wine is then left on its lees for a 60 days before being bottled.
