Ammasso

Rosso Sicilia DOC

Ammasso means a traditional winemaking technique that still today is used to vinify the best parcels in Sicily.

Variety

Nero d'Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

Production Area

Sicily - Santa Ninfa - Belice Valley.

Soil

Soil predominantly consisting of limestone, clay, and iron. Mediterranean climate.

Winemaking

The best grapes are hand-picked and placed in single layers of small cases of maximum 5kg each. Grapes are stored for 4 weeks in a controlled temperature fruit chamber room. The natural enzymatic processes develop the peculiar aromas and taste profile. Grapes are gently handled to preserve their delicate balance. The wine rests for 8-10 months in medium toasted oak casks. After 4 months in the bottle, the wine starts showing its best expression.
Guyot training system.

Tasting notes

Il vino ottenuto da parziale appassimento sulla pianta risulta opulento, potente, ma finemente equilibrato.
Le note candite si avvolgono a quelle tostate regalando al palato pienezza e sensualità.

Pairing

A fruit driven red best paired with savory meat dishes, baked pasta, and matured cheeses. Serve between 14-16°C. / 57-60°F. Serve up to 1 hour after opening.

Questo esotico esempio di Pinot Grigio Bio ha un bel colore giallo paglierino. Al naso è fresco e pulito, con evidenti note fruttate di pera, mela verde e pesca bianca. In bocca si ritrovano i sentori del naso, con note di agrumi e un'acidità che lo rende delicato e fragrante. 🍇🍐 🍏 🍑 This exotic example of Pinot Grigio Organic has a straw to pale gold color. The nose is fresh and clean with fruity notes made up of pear, green apple and white peaches. The palate is true to the nose with a fresh acidity, coriander and lime notes followed by a crisp finish. #whitewine #grapes #sicilia #sicily #baronemontalto #acquerello #wine #winelovers #winepassion #winery #winelife #experiencesicily

Babbaluci = piccole lumache di terra. Il nome deriva forse dall’arabo “babush“, le scarpe da donna con la punta ricurva verso l’alto (da cui traggono il nome le pantofole di pezza, in siciliano “babbucce”). Una seconda ipotesi sull'origine del nome babbaluci è dal greco arcaico “boubalàkion“ (bufalo) a cui venivano paragonati per via delle corna 🐌☀️ Babbaluci = small earth snails. The name derives perhaps from the Arabic "babush", the women's shoes with the toe portion pointing upwards. A second hypothesis on the origin of the name Babbaluci is from the Greek archaic "boubalàkion" (buffalo) to which they were compared due to their horns #baronemontalto #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #siciliadascoprire #winelovers #winepassion #curiosity #sayings #cultura #culture #babbaluci
