"Santagostino Baglio Sorìa" Bianco Terre Siciliane IGT - Firriato

A blend of Catarratto, the most widespread indigenous white grape variety in Sicily, and Chardonnay, an international grape variety that has proven to be a perfect fit on the island. This is Santagostino Bianco, one of the most prestigious wines of Trapani-based Firriato. A wine of character, sophisticated and elegant, much of the credit for its success can be attributed to the particular endowment of mineral elements present in the soils of Baglio Sorìa, where Catarratto ripens to its best. In the cellar, then, the processes are accurate and the fruit of long experience, with the Chardonnay fermenting in barriques, acquiring complexity and depth. Straw yellow in colour, Santagostino Bianco presents a pleasantly variegated nose, with delicate notes of flowers and fruit that intersect with those of citrus. In the mouth, however, the Catarratto brings body, and the Chardonnay complements it with typical exotic fruit notes, softened and made more elegant by the passage in wood. An absolute champion on the international scene for over thirty years, Santagostino Bianco encapsulates the scents of the most authentic Sicilian character. For lovers of territorial pairings, this white wine pairs well with savoury dishes such as pasta with Trapanese pesto.

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.
