This is an innovative Sicialian wine, which expresses the Sicilian attitude of welcoming both native and international vines. Twenty years of studies in the area have directed the producer towards new ideas and the production of some wide-ranging and modern labels, such as Santannella Terre Siciliane IGT, the result of a vinification and refinement seeking seduction in the sip.

This wine is produced with a cryomaceration technique, just a few hours to extract and preserve the aromas; only a few months of barrique to give completeness and structure to the refinement of Fiano; a stop in steel for the Chenin Blanc - a French grape originating from the Loire - to preserve the authenticity of each individual expression.

Santannella is the feeling of the most intimate Sicily, that expression that moves away from stereotypes, which chooses an unconventional blend, a consistency of taste and timing, a strong yet generous character. Golden straw yellow shades introduce the warmth of the earth. The nose is broad, dry, laid out by the sea and salt. The palate convinces with its spontaneity, an immediate, lively and lively drink of yellow pulp fruit.

We tasted it paired with a plate of Busiate alla Trapanese, a winning combination, a diversity that conquers, a hint of summer all year round.

Serve at a temperature of 10 degrees.
