A true challenge: Gewürztraminer and Semillon, two uncommon vines for Sicily, yet selected and used in equal proportions to bring to life a Passito wine atypical for the island. The intensely aromatic notes of Gewürztraminer blend perfectly with the excellent structure of the Semillon; everything is supported by a perfect acidity. the label, the masterful stroke of Gianfranco Ferrè, an architect keen on fashion, tells the story of this great international varietal “marriage" in Sicily.
Intensely aromatic notes, perfect acidity. It features sweet flavours with hints of dried fruit, honey and rose.
Amber colour, intensely aromatic notes, intoxicating scents. If there is a wine that tells the character of Sicily this is the passito: complex, harmonious, suitably sweet and persistent just like the Trinacria that traces an indelible mark in the hearts of visitors.
Johann Wolfgang Goethe wrote: 'Italy, without Sicily, leaves no image in the soul: here it all begins.' Sipping a glass of passito at the end of a meal is like embarking on a journey to discover this land full of contrasts and fascinating stories to tell.
Just like the story of the Passito di Feudi del Pisciotto, born from an unprecedented challenge launched by the greatest oenologist of all time, Giacomo Tachis. It was he who suggested to Paolo Panerai and to the oenologist and his disciple, Alessandro Cellai, not to make a passito with the zibibbo but to cultivate two vines in Sicily, Gewürztraminer and Semillon, which no one would have imagined capable of thriving in the scorching heat of the island.
