Tasting Notes

A bright yellow/gold in colour, it has intense and elegant aromas reminiscent of citrus and orange blossom. The palate is enveloping and fruit-driven, and it would make an excellent pairing to first courses and fried fish.

The Producer

Assuli, which means “under the sun” in the local dialect,combines tradition and innovation in a wonderful westernSicilian location. Their 120 hectares of vineyards between Mazara del Vallo and Trapani benefit from conditions perfectly suited to growing indigenous varieties, including Nero d’Avola, Zibibbo, Insolia, Lucido, Grillo, Perricone, and Syrah. Their characterful wines are 100% organic and authentically reflect the terroir of the region.

Vinification

Extremely soft pressing with membrane press, followed by static clarification of the musts and fermentation at controlled temperatures (16-17°C) in stainless steel tanks. Aged for 4-5 months in stainless steel ‘sur lie’, then in bottle for at least 2-3 months.
