Firriato - Chiaramonte Inzolia - Sicilia
Overview: For a long time Inzolia has been the supporting column behind Sicilian oenology. Grateful for this glorious past the Di Gaetano family interprets the history of this vine in the fertile soils of Dàgala Borromeo, where the interaction of the terroir and microclimate give surprising results. The heroes of Firriato, who as ever guard the authenticity of the native varieties, preserve it with care and attention. The soil and climate conditions that are found in the land of the Trapani countryside, with a high different in temperature between day and night, are ideal for bringing out the best of its semi-aromatic nature, which is enhanced in the glass through strict, modern vinification. Today Chiaramonte Inzolia, with its freshness and minerality, is considered one of the best single varietal representations of this variety.
Tasting Notes: Mellow yet bright straw yellow, almost greenish. Delicate and fine, with a profusion of hints reminiscent of exotic fruit and especially pineapple, mango and papaya, almond, lime, wisteria, iris and acacia that blend delightful hints of Mediterranean herbs. Freshness is the virtue of this wine, which, together with fruit concentrated aromas makes it very pleasant and drinkable; it finally closes with a taste of almond and sea breeze.
Pairing: Whole Roasted Salted Fish, Anchovy Pizza
