Morgante Bianco di Morgante 2013
Soft golden-yellow color with greenish reflections. Aromas of pineapple and citrus fruits complement undertones of caramel, corn, and lemon zest. On the palate, it has the tannic texture of a red wine with balanced acidity, a fruity trail, and a lingering finish. Pairs well with fresh cheeses, alfredo sauces, risottos, roasted chicken, shellfish, fish (especially grilled), and spaghetti alla puttanesca.
100% Nero d'Avola. The Morgante winery is located in the pristine countryside of southern Sicily, a hilly region located just 45 miles from the splendid Valley of the Temples of Agrigento. The property is comprised of 500 acres of vineyards and almond trees with a Mediterranean climate and soil that ranges from clay and calcareous to marl, which is ideal for viticulture. Morgante represents one family's initiative to employ five generations of viticultural experience. In 1994, Antonio Morgante with the enthusiasm of his sons, Carmelo and Giovanni, decided to vinify their vineyard grapes. This decision represented the beginning of a strong commitment to achieve the best results with indigenous grapes while keeping an eye toward innovation. Bianco di Morgante is an eccentric and unexpected white wine vinified from red grapes, striking the perfect balance between taste and style—eluding interpretation.
