Altavilla della Corte Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 - Firriato

That Sicily is a paradise for wine, we are certainly not the first to say. This is well understood by tasting wines produced here from international grape varieties. Wines, that is, that can easily be compared to others produced in other parts of the world. The result of the comparison rarely disappoints. Sicily always (or at least very often) has an edge. This is further confirmed by this Altavilla della Corte, a pure Cabernet Sauvignon proposed by Firriato of Trapani. Cabernet Sauvignon, a grape variety of Bordeaux origin, gives wines characterised by an incomparable softness on the palate. An ideal variety for the production of great reds destined for long ageing, it finds particularly fertile soil on the island in the heart of the Mediterranean. Harvested by hand during the second ten days of September, the wine undergoes traditional red vinification in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. This is followed by malolactic fermentation and slow ageing in French and American oak barrels for about 7 months. The result is a red wine characterised by a beautiful intense ruby colour, with seductive notes of cherries, blueberries, blackberries and rhubarb, enveloped by intriguing hints of dark chocolate, juniper berries and tobacco. A rich, broad and elegant bouquet that only the best Cabernet Sauvignon is able to give.

Among Sicily's most representative wineries is undoubtedly Firriato. Modern in conception, style and marketing, Firriato was born from the idea of a visionary entrepreneur from Trapani, Salvatore Di Gaetano, who has always been flanked by his charming wife Vinzia, who for years also represented the winery's public image in the world. It was the 1980s and Sicilian wine was about to experience its golden age, its renaissance, as someone wrote in the past. Today, almost 40 years later, the Firriato winery is a solid reality, based in Paceco, between Trapani and Erice, with vineyards scattered in different areas of Sicily. In fact, it owns around 320 hectares of vines, divided into no less than seven different estates, including one on the slopes of Mount Etna and one on the island of Favignana. If in the countryside the strictest respect for nature reigns, in the cellar it is technology that helps the oenologists make the most of each variety worked, whether native or international. The result is wines that have won awards from critics all over the world and are sought after by wine enthusiasts, year after year.
