Salvo Foti wanted to dedicate the label of this wine to Alba, a small and graceful butterfly native to Etna at risk of extinction. The all-natural methods used to make this wine make Aurora the perfect representation of Etna’s incredible biodiversity.
The volcanic and sandy soil, rich in lava stones, lends an unparalleled minerality to Etna’s white wines. The vineyard from which Aurora’s grapes come is located in an extraordinary and unique location, centrally between Etna’s crater and the coast of the Ionian Sea. Cultivation takes place in the traditional form of the Etnean Alberello and strictly by hand, without the use of synthetic products. Aging takes place in steel tanks for 6 months to keep the natural aromas of this white wine unaltered.
The color is a straw yellow with golden reflections.
The nose opens with white peach and tropical fruits, continuing with citrus and mineral notes.
The palate is reminiscent of herbs and beeswax, with smooth acidity and long persistence on the palate.
At the table, in addition to classic pairings with fish and shellfish, it also goes well with white meat and especially with legumes.
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.
