Florio Vino - Cantine Florio

€14.40
Florio Vino from the famous old Sicilian winery Florio in Marsala. It is the first traditional white wine produced from this very old Marsala winery. It is a full body white wine made solely from the local Grillo grape from vines grown on a coastal strip near the town of Marsala on western Sicily. It is a vibrant yellow unfiltered white wine, which will improve over time thanks to a continuous organoleptic evolution. It has aromas of orange blossom, jasmine and the sea, and the taste is rich with a savory character.

In 1832 Vincenzo Florio acquired land on a strip of beach situated between the wineries of Ingham and Woodhouse outside the town of Marsala in Sicily. He built the Florio winery in a typical Anglo-Saxon style of the times complete with lancet arches and floors of pressed tuff powder. The building inspired great admiration and improved the industrial nature of the city of Marsala helping it develop into one of Sicily’s richest business centers.

The sun-drenched Grillo vineyards for this white wine are located on a coastal strip of the municipality of Marsala on western Sicily. The vines grow in medium-textured, dry and very sandy red soil in a climate with very hot, dry summers, marked by strong winds. Fermentation took place in cement tanks before the was allowed to mature for some months on the fine lees in these tanks.
