White Terre Tardive Milazzo

Terre Tardive of Milazzo is a Sicilian sweet wine born from the signature blend of Chardonnay and Inzolia grapes undertaken in 1991 with the Maria Costanza Bianco. It is a sophisticated and elegant wine, the result of innovation, in terms of quality and cultivation techniques, and of experimentation with blends and vinification methods. It is in fact the result of a late harvest that enriches it in flavor and sweetness.

Terre Tardive is a Sicilian sweet wine born from the signature blend of Chardonnay and Inzolia grapes undertaken in 1991 with the White Maria Costanza. It is a sophisticated and elegant wine, the result of innovation, in terms of quality and cultivation techniques, and of experimentation with blends and vinification methods. It is in fact the result of a late harvest thanks to which the grapes, left on the shoots beyond their ripeness, wither, enriching themselves with sugars. This gives more intense sweetness and flavor.
