Riserva Naturale Monte Genuardo
An enjoyable, unoaked white wine made from a blend of Chardonnay, Grillo and Viognier. Everything in the family vineyards happens with respect for the vines and their territory, with no use of any chemical or synthetic substances.
The organic grapes are sourced from the historic family vineyards in Contessa Entellina and Sambuca di Sicilia, in the nature reserve of Monte Genuardo. At harvest, the grapes are hand-picked, each variety at perfect maturity. Destemmed grapes are soft pressed and fermentation takes place in stainless steel. Regular batonage by hand. Aged for 6 months in stainless steel, on the fine lees.
From the first aromas the wine recalls Mediterranean herbs and citrus, melon and hints of honey. Expressive and full of contrasts between fruity and savory notes.
