Suòlo 3 - Sauvignon Blanc - Terre Siciliane I.G.T. - Duca di Salaparuta

Suòlo 3 Sauvignon Blanc from the famous Duca Di Salaparuta produced at their Suor Marchesa Winery in Riesi near Caltanisetta and near the south coast in central Sicily. The wine takes its name from the type of soil (suòlo) in the vineyards which are located in a hilly area with calcareous soil in an area exposed to the powerful sun in Summer but also benefitting from the constant sea breezes which together give ideal condition for growing Sauvignon Blanc grapes. This is a lovely fresh wine with an elegant and complex bouquet with floral notes of jasmine and white broom. The taste is ample, well-structured, fresh and very persistent on the palate.

The House of Duca di Salaparuta was established in 1824 by Giuseppe Alliata, Duke of Salaparuta, a passionate connoisseur of good wine. He wanted to produce delicate, elegant, “French style” wines, from the grapes of his own estate located in Casteldaccia near Palermo in Sicily. The company’s first wines were born being an absolute innovation compared to the island’s production at that time. Since then the company gradually expanded by purchasing additional land, wineries and wine companies, and today constitute the largest private winery corporation in Sicily.

In 2002 Duca di Salaparuta purchased the 127 hectar Suor Marchesa estate near the town of Butera in the province of Caltanisetta in Central-South Sicily. This location was chosen for its southern exposure, excellent ventilation and sunlight, and the limestone composition of the soil. Facing south, the vineyards are sunny during the day, have the right degree of slope and the adequate natural ventilation guaranteed by the hilly area, all of which allow the grapes to maintain the correct hydration balance. The intense exposure to sunlight, combined with mild temperatures and a wide temperature range, allows the grape clusters to reach full ripeness.

The grapes for Suòlo 3 Sauvignon Blanc come from vineyards located at an altitude of 300-350 meters in a region with mild winters with very dry springs and summers. Harvesting was done by hand at full ripening. The grapes were destemmed and macerated cold on the skins followed by a gentle pressing. The must was decanted cold and are then left to ferment partly in steel tanks and partly in oak barrels. The wine matured on its fine lees for six months followed by bottle refinement for 3 months.
