This rare white wine is made from the dark-skinned red variety Nerello Mascalese. The whole grapes were pressed and vinified reductively with low sulphur content. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks and lasted for 12 to 14 days at controlled temperatures of 14 to 18°C. Following fermentation, the wine rested on its fine lees between four to six months at low temperatures with stirring three times per week to impart texture and delicate complexity. The wine was made using organic methods and received three months bottle ageing prior to release.

A mouthwatering yet creamy wine with layers of pineapple, wild floral notes, herbs and mint giving way to a fresh and fruity palate with a lifted mineral finish.

Winery

The 15-hectare vineyard is situated in the Contrada Feudo S. Anastasia at an elevation of approximately 620 metres above sea level, where warm days and cool nights encourage a long ripening period concentrating the flavours in the grapes while retaining balancing acidity. The vines are grown in volcanic soils, which are rich in minerals and fossils. The soil is permeable to air and water and is rich in pumice stone and microelements, which allow the plants to produce a complex aromatic profile. The 14-year-old espalier-trained vines are spur cordon pruned. They are cultivated following organic and biodynamic principles and the vineyard is in conversion to organic status. The organic treatments of sulphur and copper treatments are only used when powdery or downy mildew seriously affects the vineyard. The vine moth is combatted by the use of natural pheromones, which generates confusion in the moth and prevents it from attacking the fruit.
