"Biosfera" Terre Siciliane IGT White - Carlo Pellegrino 1880

Sicily alone boasts one of the largest heritage of native grape varieties in the world. There are dozens of grapes traditionally grown on the island, including Catarratto and Grecanico, used in equal measure in the blend of this interesting Biosfera, Terre Siciliane IGT offered by Pellegrino. The grapes come from the company's vineyards in Trapani. When the grapes are perfectly ripe, the vinification process begins in reduction, meaning without oxygen to best preserve the finer aromas of the fruit. Soft pressing and a long fermentation, always at low temperature. This is followed by 4 months of refinement in steel tanks and bottling. The result is a wine characterized by a beautiful straw yellow color with golden reflections. Aromas of orange blossom and citron stand out on the nose, while on the palate this wine is light, fresh and savory, with pleasant notes of citrus and yellow flesh fruits. Shall we enjoy it? Let it sit in the refrigerator until a few minutes before serving, and then let it slowly warm up of a few degrees and sip it leisurely. Great paired with grilled light fish or a seafood appetizer.

It is certainly not an exaggeration to say that Carlo Pellegrino of Marsala belongs to that small group of Sicilian companies that have made the history of viticulture on the island. And at Pellegrino people are so proud of this achievement that they want to pay homage to the fact that the winery boasts over 140 years of history. Its year of foundation, in fact, is 1880. What makes this long journey truly unique, however, is that the ownership has never changed since then. On the other hand, the company's products have or have evolved a great deal. If in the past, Pellegrino was only known for the production of Marsala, nowadays in addition to the traditional fortified wines it added a range of interesting white and red wines and even passito wines, produced with grapes coming from the winery's estate in Pantelleria. Tradition (long) and innovation (a lot) are today the ingredients of its success that translates into a really wide range of products, sold in Italy and worldwide and characterized by an excellent quality-price ratio.
