Estate: Casa Vinicola Fazio is a 4th generation family estate located in the province of Trapani in northwestern Sicily. Headed by Girolamo and Vincenzo Fazio, the family is committed to respecting nature and limiting the environmental impact, thereby protecting the land for future generations. They practice integrated farming and use only organic substances. Solar panels provide 100% of the electricity for the estate.
Winemaking: Grapes were sourced from hillside vineyards in the Erice DOC. The cool, windy climate combined with the “particular geological soil” of the vineyards contributes to the fresh flavours and bright acidity their wines are known for. Slow, temperature controlled fermentation, aged for 4 months on the lees.
Tasting Notes: Pale gold with green hints in colour with aromas of lemon, wildflowers, sea salt minerals and nuts. Tropical fruit flavours are glossed by bright lemon and savoury herbaceous elements. Zippy acidity and traces of nuts comprise the dry, saline mineral finish. Wonderfully refreshing, a wine made for the heat of summer.
