Baglio Gibellina, U. Passimiento, DOC Sicily, Italy, 2021


The island of Sicily is reflected well in this wine.  ‘Baglio’ refers to the original internal courtyard of the farm, surrounded by a series of old rural warehouses once used for the collection and processing of grapes.  Old vines planted between 300-600m above sea level are grown on a mixture of clay and volcanic soils, resulting in wines that encapsulate ancient family traditions, authenticity and quality, with immense charm and easy appeal.

Tasting Note: Bright intense red fruit on the nose displaying lots of red berries. The palate is warm and full-bodied with harmonious acidity and smooth and elegant tannins.

Food pairing: Pasta and mild cheeses.

Grape: Nero d’Avola 70%, Frappato 30%    ABV 13.5%  Vegetarian / Vegan / Practising Organic  750ml bottle
