Gerundio Grecanico

Our interpretation of Grecanico is vinified without adding sulphites. The natural process of fermentation, sheltered from the air, with a controlled temperature and long contact with the lees for four months has an antioxidant effect. The notes typical of the variety are enriched with aromatic complexity: lemon tea, citrus fruits, pineapple syrup and pomegranate juice. Our Grecanico is as "free" as a dragonfly. Gerundio means "gerund," and indicates the time of the present.

GRECANICO

GRECANICO

One of the most successful rediscoveries among native Sicilian grape varieties, this white grape belongs to the Greco family. The medium-sized, five-lobed leaves present irregular serrations. Clusters are long, medium-winged and with average-sized berries; they have thick, bloom-covered skins that turn a lovely golden colour when fully ripe.
