BARONE MONTALTO IS GREEN…AND ORGANIC! #BMGreen

27 October. NEWS

Barone Montalto’s range of Organic wines, Cataratto Terre Siciliane IGT and Nero d’Avola Terre Siciliane IGT, are produced only from vineyards which have been certified as organic and which respect the regulations of law CEE 2092/91.

Indeed, 30% of wine produced is organic! A decision born out of the desire to respect our land, Sicily, and the natural world around us. The vineyards are managed without any use of synthetic chemical fertilisers or other chemical treatments.

The secret? Maintaining the balance between the vineyard and the flora and fauna which live in and around it.

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
