Sicily can be appreciated not only for its red wines, but also for the whites and international varieties offered. Chardonnay is perhaps the one that has the best adaptability among all non-native white grape varieties. In this wine, the varietal notes are brought into the spotlight and the good acidity characteristic of this grape gives it a freshness that also makes it ideal for ageing. Tasting notes: Straw-yellow and transparent, the wine is characterised by a full and fresh nose, with hints of yellow peach and pineapple. In the mouth the wine displays freshness, drinking pleasantness and a soft flavour.
Ideal with starters and seafood, white meat dishes and rich summer aperitifs.
Grillo is perhaps Sicily’s lesser known grape variety, although it is certainly not inferior to other white grape varieties. A straw-yellow wine characterised by rich apple and pear notes, which render it instantly recognisable and appreciated. The taste is warm and dry, slightly tannic and displaying a citric aroma.
Ideal paired with medium-aged cheeses and suitable for combinations with fish cuts such as tuna or swordfish.
Sicily is a region where more or less all grape varieties can give their very best. In this land, Cabernet acquires absolutely unique characteristics. Lacking vegetal notes, typical of this variety in a non-ideal way, here, Cabernet is a wine of great structure and with a polyphenolic component ideal for optimal ageing.
Ideally paired with red meat, roasts, kid and lamb. Also recommended with porcini mushrooms and aged cheeses.
Produced from one of the first vineyards planted on the Feudi del Pisciotto estates. A Merlot that expresses the full potential and character of this grape variety, which finds an ideal form of expression in Sicily’s terroir. Wine characterised by an important structure and power, while at the same time displaying exceptional elegance.
The pairing with first courses and full-flavoured white and red meats exalts its qualities and makes it possible to appreciate its characteristics. Also perfect with full-flavoured and aged cheeses.
As is the case with the Nero d’Avola variety, Frappato also demonstrates Sicily’s full winemaking potential, able to produce a powerful, persistent and very elegant wine that inspires the taster from its very first olfactory notes, which characterise it in an unmistakable manner.
Ideal with fresh cheeses, cold cuts and full-flavoured fish dishes.
The grape variety that expresses the character of Sicily’s oenological tradition better than all the others. This wine, meticulously produced using the estate’s finest resources expresses, in absolute purity, the extraordinary elegance and ability of wine to improve over time.
Pairs well with red meat roasts, game, stews and aged full-flavoured cheeses.
Cerasuolo di Vittoria is the first and only Sicilian DOCG wine. A wine with a great personality obtained through the vinification of the Frappato and Nero d’Avola grape varieties.
Pairs very well with white and red meat roasts, braised beef, small game cooked on a spit and sharp aged cheeses.
