"A clean, finely made Mediterranean white, this is lean with scents of chamomile and seashells. The bitter almond finish will balance a sweet crudo, like hamachi with figs." (06/12)

Product Description:

Wine:
"Clear and crisp, Granny Smith apple, clear appearance without exaggerations, and so it finishes too, a bit austere but pleasant." - Importer

Winemakers:
"Following in the footsteps of our Great Grandfather Cristoforo Ciaccio who planted the first vineyards in 1860 and aged his wines in the cellar of the old farmhouse Fiuminello, the Di Giovanna family has continued to cultivate its vineyards with unwavering dedication and pride for generations."

"In 1985, Aurelio Di Giovanna and his wife Barbara, initiated in-depth study of their mico-climates and soils. Following careful cloning and testing they identified the vines best suited for each vineyard. Each property was delinated into 5 unique vineyard sites: Miccina, Gerbino, and Paradiso at 350-480m above sea level in the village of Contessa Entellina (PA). The Fiuminello and San Giacomo vineyards flourish at 700-830m above sea level in the mountains surrounding the town of Sambuca di Sicilia (AG)."

"The Di Giovanna family is committed to organic practices in their vineyards and winery, preserving their land and history. All of their products are certified organic through Suolo e Salute srl. Since 1997." - Importer

This was also scored 86 points by the Wine Enthusiast.
