    "Saint German" Spumante Brut
  • Bubbles, the good ones, in Italy are no longer the prerogative only of the historic regions, Piedmont, Lombardy and Veneto. Today, on the contrary, the bubbles that are most popular are those that have a touch of personality, usually given by the processing of indigenous grape varieties. As in this case. Saint Germain, in fact, is a Brut sparkling wine, proposed here by Firriato, which is the result of the encounter between Catarratto and Grillo. These two indigenous white grape varieties have contributed to the oenological success of Sicily. The curious name recalls 18th-century France, although this bubbly has decidedly Italian origins. In fact, it was born in the fertile lands of the Trapani countryside, in Borgo Guarini, a unique agricultural context. Freshness and minerality come together in harmony thanks to the sparkling process using the Martinotti method, in an autoclave, which succeeds in enhancing the rich aromatic notes of the two starting varietals. Brio and very pleasant drinkability for a bubbly that, we are ready to bet, will certainly not make us regret having gone on the safe side by choosing a traditional sparkling wine. To appreciate it at its best, let's uncork it nice and chilled, already at aperitif time. On the table, let's pair it with mouth-watering dishes such as the traditional fried fish dish.

    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.
