Established in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Castelvero, the leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte.
This wine is a blend of fruit sourced from the Marsala area on the west coast of Sicily, and from high altitude hillside vineyards near Alcamo. Gentle pressing, cool, slow fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts. The wine was bottled young after a short period of ageing on fine lees in stainless steel.
Ripe tropical fruit aromas with hints of barley sugar and a lightly herbal note. Stone fruit characters on the palate, gently honeyed, and finishing with fresh citrus acidity.
Ideal as an aperitif or with pesce spada alla siciliana, butter-fried sardines that are stuffed with a mixture of toasted breadcrumbs, parsley, anchovies, pine nuts, and raisins, with the occasional addition of grated parmesan, sautéed prawns with chilli or grilled veg and soft goats cheese!
