Light straw yellow in color, it has a rich bouquet of tropical fruit with notes of apricots and peaches. It is full and round on the palate with a lovely balancing acidity and a long perfumed finish.
Wine Maker Notes
The vineyards are located in Western Sicily, in the Salemi area at about 25 miles from Marsala. They are planted east facing following the vertical trellis system on sandy and clay rich soil, using guyot pruning. At an altitude of around 1,600 feet above sea level, they are about 15 years old.After de-stemming and maceration for a few hours, the grapes are subject to soft-press before fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. The wine is then left on its lees for about a couple of weeks before being bottled.
