Production Area

Sicily Region - Valle del Belice


Alluvial and deep brown soils, medium texture, sandy-clay composition, high content of organic matter. Mediterranean climate.


12 hours of cold maceration prior to pressing results in maximum flavor potential. Fermentation in stainless steel vats at 12-14°C for 20 days is carried out to conserve the fruit flavor and sensory profile.

Tasting notes

A brilliant, clear, yellow wine with an interesting bouquet of floral, nutty, and fruity aromas. This is a medium-structured wine with an amazingly crisp acidity.


Great with starters made with Italian cheeses and shellfish. Especially suitable for quiche made with Sicilian vegetables or baked stuffed red onions. Serve between 49°-55°F./ 10°-12°C.
