Typically, the aromatic flavour of local wild fennel leaf is used in many sauces and cured meats, and when combined with local Avola almonds in a rich tomato base, results in a delicious creamy pesto sauce that is overflowing with lively flavours.

Organoleptic properties/sensory notes:
Light and bright straw.The nose reveals an elusive flowery fragrance, remembrances of an english meadow. Dynamic on the palate, with a pleasant balance dictated by freshness and flavour on one side and alcohol content on the other. Almond and fresh closure capable of reinforcing the finish of the mouth.This pleasure in a bottle finds its match with creamy pasta and risotto dishes, delightful with fish and antipasti, also makes a splendid aperitif.

Handpicked in boxes, the grapes are then de-stemmed and softly pressed. The free run must is statically cold decanted for at least 24 hours. The must undergoes a slow fermentation in a special steel tanks at a strictly controlled temperature (12/14 C) which lasts for about 12-15 days. Maturation continues in steel in order to obtain a fresh and delicately scented wine. Rest in bottle for 5 to 7 months.
