PRETIOSA

IGP TERRE SICILIANE

An elegant white wine, well structured and rich in aromas. Produced after a slight overripeness of Albanello’s grapes, one of the historical vines of this part of Sicily. The colour is straw yellow. Intense notes of tropical fruit, pineapple and banana are immediately perceptible to the nose as well as a background of citrus. To the palate, notes of vanilla and almond mix with delicate spiciness.
