"Il Bianco di Ludovico" Sicilia DOC Riserva 2018 - Tenute Orestiadi

A wine that celebrates the encounter between the Mediterranean and the world, telling the dream of Ludovico, President of the Orestiadi Foundation. It does so thanks to the union between Catarratto, the emblem of Sicilian whites, and Chardonnay, among the best-known varietals cultivated in all the wine-growing areas of the planet. White, like the hat Ludovico used to wear. A wine to be discovered that comes from vineyards rooted in a particular Terra Nera, typical of the Trapani hinterland, rich in clayey-silt substances, compact and drought-resistant. Thanks to these characteristics, Terra Nera is ideal for the cultivation of numerous vine varieties. After an initial cryomaceration phase, the grapes are softly pressed, followed by fermentation by spontaneous yeasts. Only at this point do Cataratto and Chardonnay meet, in the final blend. This is followed by approximately 6 months of maturation on the lees and 6 months in which half of the product matures in French oak tonneaux. Once the two parts are combined, the wine spends a further 6 months in steel sur lies and at least 4 months in the bottle. A long journey necessary to reach the right maturity. This reveals a wine characterised by a beautiful, bright yellow colour with greenish reflections. On the nose, white-fleshed fruit such as plum, apple and pineapple, as well as hints of flint. In the mouth, however, it is pleasantly round and complex. Finely mineral and pleasantly fresh. For lovers of terroir pairings, this white is simply perfect with the most Mediterranean of dishes, fish couscous.

A story of strength, proactive pride and passion. This is where the story of the Orestiadi Estates, born in 2008 in the heart of the Belìce Valley, begins. We are in Gibellina, in the western part of Sicily, in the heart of the golden triangle composed of Trapani, Marsala and Agrigento. Here Mediterranean scents and colours are interwoven with myth and art. Tenute Orestiadi represent a journey through completely different terroirs, with rich and varied characteristics. With only one common denominator: the ability to valorise indigenous varietals. Then, in 2018, thanks to shared values and the same love for the territory, Tenute Orestiadi began a collaboration with a beautiful reality on Etna, La Gelsomina.

Technical Data Sheet

CHARACTERISTICS
  • TypeDry still white DOC
  • Location Sizilien
  • Grapes VITIGNO : 90% Catarratto - 10% Chardonnay
  • Sensations A wine with a bright yellow colour with greenish, almost chlorophyll-like reflections. On the nose, the Mediterranean character of this wine meets internationality through white-fleshed fruits such as plum, apple and pineapple and hints of flint, destined to increase with bottle evolution. In the mouth, roundness and complexity are well integrated with minerality. This encounter gives the wine an enveloping vein without ever losing its freshness.
  • Vinification After cryomaceration at 4 degrees for 4 hours, soft pressing is followed by fermentation with spontaneous yeasts, which lasts 20 days at a controlled temperature. Only at this point do Catarratto and Chardonnay meet, becoming the blend of Bianco di Ludovico. This is followed by 6 months of maturation on the lees with 2 batonnages per week. For the next 6 months, half of the product matures in French oak tonneaux, half in steel. Together, the two spend a further 6 months in steel sur lies and at least 4 months in the bottle.
