WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
The Carricante grape variety wonderfully represents the terroir from which it comes and the biodiversity of Etna
Vigna di Milo is the name of this wine and the plot of land from which it comes, which is cultivated with 100% Carricante. This plot is characterized by a remarkable quality, the result of a viticultural selection made by Salvo Foti in more than 20 years of activity. In addition, the vineyard was planted with the ancient Etnean technique of “magliuoli“: a direct production, without grafting on American vines.
The cultivation and processing of the vineyard is done by hand and exclusively by means of natural products. The native yeasts used lead to spontaneous fermentation. Aging takes place for 12 months in large wooden barrels, racking and bottling follow the phases of the moon.
The intense straw yellow color given by the aging draws golden hues.
The nose is rich and recalls oranges, wild flowers and quinces; it has notes of rosemary and thyme, as well as almonds and toast.
The taste gives freshness and a pleasant savoriness, lingering to the close.
At the table it is the ideal companion to fish dishes, especially anchovies in oil; also excellent with white meats and legumes. It will succeed in making your dinners, whether romantic or with friends, unforgettable!
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in saying that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it brings to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
