The ancient and unchanged land of Sicily is truthfully reflected in the wines of Baglio Gibellina.

‘Baglio’ refers to the original internal courtyard of the farm, surrounded by a series of old rural warehouses once used for the collection and processing of grapes. Old vines planted between 300-600m above sea level are grown on a mixture of clay and volcanic soils. The grapes are hand-harvested at night to take advantage of the cooler temperatures, retain freshness and keep the bunches intact and avoid any skin maceration. Soft pressing followed by temperature-controlled fermentation. The components are kept cool to settle and final blend is made in spring following harvest. No oak ageing.

Baglio Gibellina U. Passimiento Bianco wine is intense, elegant and complex with a wonderful combination of citrus, grapefruit, apple and white flesh fruit flavours with a hint of Mediterranean flora. Pair with grilled vegetable dishes, antipasti, fish, or vongole pasta … but equally delicious with roast chicken.
