The Alikase range is the purest expression of our land, showcasing the unique qualities of the land from which they come from.

VARIETY GRAPES: Chardonnay 100%

DENOMINATION: Sicilia Doc

STYLE: Dry  

PRODUCTION ZONE: south-west Sicily, Salaparuta estate 
CELLARING: Enjoy now until 2022 

VINEYARD: Deep alluvial clay soil, with good content of limestone.

West-facing gentle slopes. Altitude 350 m a.m.s.l.; Hilly orography.

VINTAGE: 2021 summer was characterized by abundant rainfall, which resulted in later maturity and harvest dates.

WINEMAKING: The fruit is individually handpicked and whole bunch pressed to ensure purity and concentration of flavors. Fermentation occurs in stainless-steel tanks. Once vinification is finished, the wine is aged ‘sur lie’ for three months to add extra texture and complexity before being bottled. 

APPEARANCE: Pale straw yellow

TASTING NOTES: The nose is fresh and light, with elegant aromas of ripe peach, lemon and a hint of tropical fruit. On the palate, a dry, medium-bodied white wine with a lovely underlying minerality thanks to Salaparuta soil; notes of zesty pineapple and nuts with a long, clean finish. 

FIRST VINTAGE: 2018
