The Firriato company is one of the largest wine producers in Sicily, currently owning 6 wineries located in various parts of Sicily with very different terroir, which allows the company to produce very different wines. The philosophy has since the start of the company in the 1980’ies been to produce high quality wines, mainly based on indigenous grapes. The innovative Firriato wines have significantly supported the fame and global acceptance of Sicilian wines and made Firriato one of the most famous Sicilian wine producers.
The Syrah and Nero d’Avola vines for the Santagostino Baglio Sorìa Rosso red wine grow in the vineyards at Firriato’s Baglio Sorìa winery near Trapani in Western Sicily at an altitude of 200-250 m. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted and destalked followed by 10 days fermentation on the skins in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. The wine was matured for 8 months in American oak-barriques and 6 months in the bottles.
Colour: Deep intense ruby red with lively shades of purple.
Bouquet: Concentrated, well-defined nuances of marasca cherries, wild berries, rhubarb, cloves, aromatic herbs and prunes that alternate and blend with charming hints of liquorice, ink and tobacco leaves.
