“Soleggiato” wine, fruit of the earth, of man and of the sun. An ancient technique that exploits the heat and light of the Val di Noto, in order to give unexpected, complex and fragrant wines that tell the energy of Contrada Buonivini. The muscatedda grapes dried in the sun, ferment spontaneously with the skins to obtain a dry wine that evolves for years in barrels, followed by aging in steel using the traditional perpetual method, with decanting of small parts of new wine in tanks with aged wines of more harvests, the wine concludes its production process with a long period of exposure to the sun in glass demijohns. The wine has complex aromas of dried fruit and Mediterranean scrub gaining balance and aromatic complexity in an oxidative style thanks to the action of the sun.
To depict this wine we have decided to enhance the ancient technique that characterizes this product with the image of our demijohns placed in the sun, full of light and energy.
