Description

History

The history of Firriato begins in the 1980s thanks to Salvatore Di Gaetano who was attracted to a very particular place, the Firriato neighborhood just outside the city of Trapani; a magical place, always linked to the cultivation of vines and marked by the sea on one side and the fortress of the city of Erice on the other. He therefore decided to start again from the vineyard by planting the first vineyards of Nero d’Avola, Catarratto and Inzolia with the desire to obtain wines of great territorial expression and quality, something that had practically not yet been done in the Trapani area. In those years the Di Gaetano and Firriato family will be among the main interpreters of this wine “revolution” that Sicily will go through, making its wines known as high quality products and easily identifiable for style and quality.

Tasting notes

Pale but extremely bright golden color, with a subtle and creamy perlage. The aromatic bouquet opens on a complex mix of white flowers, fresh and dried fruit, leavened notes and hints of bread crust. In the mouth it offers a coherent and enveloping sip, characterized by an elegant harmony, a pleasant intriguing flavor and a long citrus finish.

Possible combinations

It adapts perfectly to being drunk as aperitifs, splendidly with fish-based first courses, even elaborate ones, and second courses based on blue fish and fine shellfish.
