SUNSET IN SICILY
Three wines, three producers, one land: Sicily and its extreme terroirs offer wines with organoleptic qualities difficult to find in other parts of the world, thanks to its vineyards that grow on the black volcanic slopes of Etna or a few meters from the sea on sandy and saline layers.
Tramonto in Sicilia is a tasting box that allows anyone, even without experience, to understand perfectly how the terroir affects the vineyard and then the wine, giving it all the organoleptic properties in a mix of volcanic minerals and sea salinity.
Sicily is a unique wine-growing area in the world and is the largest wine-growing region in Italy.
What makes its wines so special is the assemblage of its terroirs that host vineyards cultivated in extreme areas: from the Narello that grows on the black volcanic slopes of Etna absorbing all its organoleptic properties, to the vineyards cultivated 10 meters from the sea, such as the Favinia of the island of Favignana, whose terroir is rich in marine infiltrations and saline winds that drag dry algae giving the wine all the splendor of the sea.
WHAT IT CONTAINS:
SRC Rosato 2016: based on the vinification of Nerello Mascarese (90%) and Carricante (10%), its organoleptic qualities resume the typical properties of a vine whose roots sink into the slopes of Etna, absorbing all the minerals of a volcanic soil that perfectly balance the sweetness of sugar typical of berries grown in heat.
The alcohol content remains around 12.If you close your eyes imagining the Nerello vineyard growing on the volcanic slopes and smell in depth you will be amazed by the scents that you can draw from it: mineral background flanked by deep floral and fruity scents with a prevalence of quince remaining consistent on the palate with balance and harmony.
Benanti Nerello Cappuccio 2015: vinified on the basis of Nerello Cappuccio, a limited variety of Nerello Mascalese, also typical of the black soils of the slopes of Etna bringing with it everything that follows in terms of minerality to strong flavors.
Refined in barrels for 10 months is a red wine that is dry on the palate, rightly acid and perfectly balanced in its minerality that contrasts with the sugar berry, while slight tannins accompany a delicate finish.
Firriato Favinia La Muciara 2016: a white wine made from the native grapes of Grillo, Catarratto and Zibibbo grown in the Calamoni vineyard on the island of Favignana.
It is a wine that reflects the soul of this unique and extreme territory. The grapes are grown on the same level as the sea, only 10 meters from the vineyard that rests on layers of quaternary biocalcarenite, stratified over the centuries according to rhythms of sedimentation of about half a meter. Among Calamoni's agronomic practices, Firriato uses posidonia as a natural fertilizer for the vineyard. The wind carries from the sea the dried leaves of this marine plant that give the vines their nutritional components.
The Mediterranean breeze also creates a sea aerosol action that gives the wine a distinctive brackish note surrounded by elegant aromatic notes.
