Siriki Bianco - Terre Siciliane I.G.T. - Dei Principi di Spadafora
The noble Spadafora family has been producing wine for decades, but it was only in the 1990’ies that the family decided to begin bottling and marketing of the wine grown on the estate, where previously the wine has been sold in bulk. After testing and tasting the wines produced, the current owner Francesco Spadafora decided in 1993 that the estate should only produce wine from grapes grown on his land. Today the winery has 95 hectares of vineyards around Monreale growing both indigenous and international grapes.
The Grillo vines for the Siriki Bianco white wine grow in the sandy-clay vineyards in contrada Virzì in Monreale to the southwest of Palermo in western Sicily. The vines grow at an altitude of 300 m in an area subject to a temperature variation of 10-15°C between day and night which improves the maturation and the acid-sugar balance in the grapes.
The grapes were manually harvested, sorted and softly pressed followed by the fermentation which took place in stainless steel vats. The wine was aged 25 days on the skins and one year on the fine yeasts in the vats followed by 6 months in the bottle.
