Description

Details of wine

In the province of Tapani stands the Borgo Guarini Estate of the Firriato company where the grapes are grown which give life to an important white wine symbol of Sicilian oenology namely the Grillo Altavilla of the White Court. True wine, frank with its pimp character but at the same time surprising, a wine that contains the intense aromas of Sicilian citrus fruits. The grapes of this estate, in addition to the attention derived from biological treatments, enjoy a particular microclimate with the continuous presence of winds and temperature changes from day to night that give the grapes a particular aromatic concentration.
The vinification is delicate, to best preserve the aromatic outfit of this vine; after a soft pressing, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks, where it remains for about three months in contact with the noble lees, shaken daily. Two months of aging in the bottle follow.

Color

Giallo paglierino tenue, attraversato da vivaci tonalità verdoline.

Smell

Al naso sentori di agrumi fresci e intensi, che si incontrano con deliziose nuance di mandorle e meloni. E' un vino da scoprire e da vivere nella sua delicata complessità di odori fruttati e di fragranze di lavanda e ginestra.

Taste

Le papille gustative esultano all'entrata morbida e fresca di un vino che primeggia in persistenza e sobrietà. SI evince alla bocca un frutto vivace e croccante di aristocratica mineralità mediterranea, elegante e calibrata.
