IGP Terre Sicilaine
The grapes are organically grown at the family's newly planted estate vineyard, San Giacomo, located at 2,066ft (630m). The small Catarratto vineyard in the mountains of western Sicily is dedicated to making Rufulia Pet-nat.
The organic grapes are hand-harvested late August and destemmed. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks with skins for 48 hours. At 10 g/l of residual sugar, the wine is bottled during fermentation. Fermentation finishes in the bottle and the wine ages for 6 months in bottle, giving a lightly sparkling Petillant Naturel style. The wine is not disgorged so there will be sediment and tartrates in the bottle.
Unfined. Unfiltered. Certified Organic.
Aged for 6 months in bottle.
