This multi-faceted white is born from a union of Chardonnay, Grillo and Viognier, typical grapes of the Terre Sicane.
Everything in the vineyards happens with respect for the vines and their territory, with no use of any chemical or synthetic substances.
The grapes are sourced from the historic family vineyards of Gerbino and Paradiso in Contessa Entellina. Impeccable care for the vineyards and at harvest, the grapes are hand-picked,
each variety at perfect maturity. Destemmed grapes are soft
press and fermentation takes place in stainless steel. Aged for 6 months in stainless steel, on the fine lees.
