Sicilia

The winemaking of this balanced wine is entrusted to Alessandro Cellai, who is also the winemaker and managing director of the Tuscan estates, Castellare and Rocca di Frassinello. A great challenge; Gewürztraminer and Semillon in equal parts go to create a wine which is truly unique for Sicily.
