Wine maker notes
Acate in the province of Ragusa. The grape prefers more barren terrain with lots of sunlight. The type of farming is "Espalier”, used with an average density of planting where there are 4500 plants per 2.5 Acres. 100% Chardonnay. It is an average – to late varietal with maturity reached around the end of August. Collected from the grapes, the vinification is partially covered by the air (a technique called "semi-reduction”), the settling is natural, and the fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 60 degrees for 13 days in steel tanks. 15% of the must matures in wooden French barriques. Successively, the 2 components are united and conclude their maturation in steel. Finally, there is filtration, stabilization, and bottling.

Food pairing
This wine goes well with antipasto of raw seafoods, first courses of pasta with vegetables, and second courses of white meats. It should be tried paired with creamy soups such as cream of potato soup of Siracusa.
