Le Casematte “Peloro” Bianco Terre Siciliane IGP
65% Grillo and 35% Carricante. Bright straw yellow in color. The bouquet has notes of white and yellow-fleshed fruit, floral aromas of mimosa and chamomile, mineral aromas and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate, the wine is fresh and tangy with pleasant fruit and a long, invigorating finale heightened by lively citrus notes.
“Le Casematte is deeply rooted in the territory and its history but also values the needs of contemporary wine production.”
