Climate

In Sicily, the growing season was marked by abundant winter rainfall which left ample reserves of ground water for later in the season. The absence of sudden temperature swings or significant humidity allowed the vines to grow and develop without suffering outbreaks of vine diseases. The grapes were able to ripen in optimal fashion, reaching an excellent balance between sugar and acidity for a wine of fresh and fruity personality.

Winemaking

The grapes, hand-picked, were destemmed and pressed and the must then chilled to a temperature of 46° Fahrenheit (8° centigrade) to assist a natural settling of impurities. The must was then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at temperatures held constantly to a maximum of 62°-63° Fahrenheit (17° centigrade). The wine remained in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade), filtered, and then bottled.
