A great example of bright, perfumed style of white that Sicily, of all places –hot southern Sicily, almost on the coast of Africa- is now producing. Don’t ask me how, but these are some of the freshest whites in all of Italy. This is cool, scented and even manages a streak of metallic minerality. There’s shimmering violet scent and zingy yet soft, refreshing peach, pear and ripe grapefruit, all beautifully balanced and demanding to be drunk.
