DESCRIPTION

Color like straw. In the nose a bit young maybe but not perceived as a defect. One senses peaches, citrus fruit and white flowers with notes of iodine. Vibrant and dynamic in the mouth with a great acidity. To drink cold and perfect for the warm summer afternoons and evenings.

PRODUCER

The farm at Bosco Falconeria, located some 60 kilometers west of Palermo in the hills overlooking the Gulf of Castellammare, has belonged to the Simeti family since 1933, when it was a 12 hectare farm dedicated mainly to vineyards.

Family problems, the agricultural crisis and the 1968 earthquake resulted in a period of abandonment of the farm until in the early seventies when the farmhouse was restored as a vacation home.  From then onwards summers and weekends became busier and busier. The passionate involvement of Antonio Simeti, agronomist, matched with the curiosity of his wife, Mary Taylor Simeti, who in the early ‘80’s - while exporting Sicily to the States through books and articles - began to bring back information about organic agriculture, led to a complete revival of the farm.
