Ardalìa 2019

Type: White

ARDALÌA is a Terre Siciliane IGT. Its name is inspired by the original name in ancient Greek of the Larderia village, where the Tenuta Gatto vineyard is located.
It is made from 100% Nerello Mascalese varieties. The harvest is carried out by hand in mid-September, eliminating the grapes that could negatively affect the quality of the finished product.
The white vinification takes place at a controlled temperature through the use of natural yeasts for about 10 days.
The refinement takes place initially in steel silos and then passes into oak tonneaux for a short period, then it is bottled for further refinement in the bottle.
Classification: IGT Terre Siciliane
Production: 2000 bottles

Organoleptic analysis
The wine is crystalline and with a nice vivacity, with an intense and consistent straw yellow color. The nose expresses complex hints of fruit, flowers and minerals, has a slight herbaceous spiciness and many hints of citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass, some tones of tropical fruit, orange blossom, broom, iodine, metal, pink pepper, sage, thyme, wet grass). In the mouth it is fine, dry, warm, quite soft, savory, full-bodied, balanced, intense and persistent.
Serving temperature: at 10-12 ° C, served in large wine glasses
Alcoholic degree: 13,0%

Ardalìa lends itself to many combinations based on fish, even quite elaborate ones, but it can also be combined with particularly structured and savory dishes. Recommended with peppered mussels or with the “ghiotta di fish stocco”, a typical Messina dish as well as courses of cheeses and cold cuts.
