"Medium dark yellow. Balsamic oils, underbrush and sweet spices complicate ripe pear and orange peel aromas and flavors. Smooth and long on the fresh chamomile-accented finish."

Product Description:

"The Vivera family planted their carricante vines on the northeastern side of Mt. Etna in 2003. Salisire is made with 100% Carricante grapes, grown organically on volcanic soils at approx. 600mt above sea level.

The name ‘Salisire’ is a combination on two words ‘Sali’ (Uphill) and ‘Sire’ (Sir) as this wine is dedicated to dad Antonino to remember all his efforts in planting this vineyard, the hard work and dedication to create this unique wine.

‘Salisire’ is a straw-yellow color with light greenish reflections. Floral with scents of pineapple and citrus pith. It seems broad and salty with minerals when first poured, gaining focus with air to become mouthwatering and deliciously cool. Pairs well with oysters and shellfish fried fish, and vegetables." - Importer
