Ready for a new tour: Sicily goes to Norway!

02 May. NEWS

A suitcase, Barone Montalto wines, passion, three cities to be discovered and new people to meet. Together with our importer, Engelstad, we took part in the tastings organized by the Norwegian Vinmonopolet: from Trondheim, through Bergen, and last stop Ålesund.

Norway, only considering the few things seen by taxis and planes, seduces and surprises. It is one of the most successful economy in terms of social well-being, with a high level of quality of life – we saw and felt it. Here the Made in Italy tag is even more appreciated. So the best place where people can discover also the Made in Sicily by Barone Montalto!

In Norway, the wine business is controlled by a government authority called Vinmonopolet: it is the only one allowed to sell wine and any other alcoholic drinks. We were involved in the tastings and events organized by the monopoly, meeting people working at the shops and tasting with them our wines. A glass of Sicily in this lukewarm Norwegian Spring!

Fresh, fruity and fragrant, Nero d’Avola Rosato Acquerello has been one of the most appreciated, together with Catarratto Chardonnay and Nero d’Avola Appassimento method Collezione di Famiglia. These wines offer a great quality, coming from highly selected grapes, and able to adapt themselves to the needs and requests of the market in terms of packaging (BIB and BIT formats) and communication.

This is extremely important in a market where a wine is mainly chosen considering the price, the quality of the product and the brand reputation. Once again Barone Montalto is able to combine these characteristics and offer to the consumers not only a bottle of wine but also the passion of the Sicilian lands where its roots are. Let people discover a wine means especially to explore and tell them about the territory, with its own traditions, stories and people.

A huge thank you to all the friends from Engelstad family! Stay Tuned!

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 .
