Vineyards in the province of Palermo with an average cultivar age of 10 years. Lying 300 meters above sea level, they have calcareous soil of medium texture and enjoy a Mediterranean climate. There is good variation between day and night
temperatures during the period when the grapes are ripening.
The grapes are handpicked and then crushed, destemmed and chilled. Next they are delicately pressed and allowed to ferment in stainless steel vats with selected yeasts at 18°C. Once the fermentation process is complete, the wine is clarified and
stabilized before undergoing cold bottling.
Characteristics of the wine:
A fresh and enticing wine, it has a golden yellow colour with greenish hues. The bouquet of wild flowers is intense, while on the palate it is well-structured, harmonious and presents plentiful, lingering notes of flower nectar.
An excellent accompaniment for fish. It is ideal with shellfish, especially grilled prawns.
