The story of Barone Montalto began in Santa Ninfa, in the province of Trapani, in year 2000. Barone Montalto has grown over the years and now manages around 400 hectares of vineyards, some of which owned. The remaining parts are under the “Montalto quality protocol” which controls the quality of the grapes and guarantees a quality growth over the years.
Barone Montalto produces authentic modern style wines with a Sicilian soul. The wines are obtained by a careful selection of the grapes which aims at maintaining the natural characteristics of the varietals aspects during vinification.
The vines for the Zibbibo white wine grow in the Barone Montalto vineyards in the hilly area in the Belice Valley near the sea in the province of Trapani in western Sicily. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 350-500 meters above sea level, where the interaction between high daytime temperatures and cool nights gives both maturity and freshness in the grapes. The vinification starts with a cooling of the grapes for 12 hours at a temperature of 4 °C, the subsequent cold fermentation in steel tanks lasts 20 days at 12-14 °C; followed by 3 months of ageing with weekly batonnage in the steel tanks.
Longevity 3-5 years.
