Grecanico

Production Area

Sicily Region - Valle del Belice

Soil

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

Winemaking

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.

Pairing

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.

Questo vino ha un colore giallo paglierino con riflessi verde. Il profumo è ricco di agrumi come il pompelmo e delicati fiori d'arancio. I frutti esotici aiutano a bilanciare l'acidità vivace, la struttura e dando un bel finale al vino. 🍊 🍋 🌸 This wine has a straw yellow color with light green highlights. The bouquet is full of citrus fruits like grapefruit as well as delicate orange flowers. The exotic fruits help balance out the lively acidity, giving a nice structure and finish to the wine. #baronemontalto #acquerello #grillo #sauvignon #grapes #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #siciliadascoprire #winelovers #winepassion #winery #winelife

Vitti 'na crozza (Vidi un teschio) è una famosa canzone popolare siciliana su testo di autore sconosciuto, musicata dal compositore Franco Li Causi. La prima versione era un canto di lavoro, dai toni lenti e cupi, aderenti alla cadenza poetica del testo. Negli anni 1970 si adattò il canto a toni più spensierati, nel solco del clima dei gruppi folkloristici, e adattato a ballata popolare. 🎼 🌅 "Vitti 'na crozza (I see a skull) is a famous Sicilian folk song based on a text by an unknown author, music by the composer Franco Li Causi.The first version was a work song, with dark and gloomy tones, adhering to the poetic cadence of the text . In the 1970s he adapted the song to more carefree tones, in the wake of the climate of folk groups, and adapted to popular ballad.
