Description

U...passimiento starts at its old vineyards in southwest sicily, 300-600m above sea level. The wine is carefully produced to create the fresh, vibrant fruit flavour it is known for. They allow the grapes to ripen on vine and shrivel slightly, raising sugar levels and lowering natural acid, and then carefully harvested. They stop the fermentation process early to keep a slightly sweet flavour, before aging in steel tanks. All of this contributes towards the intense, yet deliciously easy to drink wine.

Wine tasting notes

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.
