The Details

In a Nutshell

Full-flavoured, rounded white with bags of character - fantastic value for money.

Tasting Notes

A honeyed, spicy nose with hints of ginger and stone fruit. Ripe apricot characters on the palate with a creamy texture, lightly nutty on the finish.

Production Notes

Grapes were sourced from vineyards in the coastal zone at the western tip of Sicily, in Petrosino, Trapani and Marzara del Vallo areas. At altitudes between 10 and 50m, in chalky soils with sandy patches, the vines used were of average age 20 – 25 years, and were trained using the Controspalliera system. Yields were 12 – 13 tons per hectare, and harvesting took place from the end of August through to the middle of September.

After undergoing temperature-controlled fermentation for 30 days, the resulting wine was filtered and bottled. No oak was used in production.

Producer - Adria Vini

Set up in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Vini Piemontesi, the leading co-operative in Piemonte.
