SIKELE GRECANICO TERRE SICILIANE ZEV ROVINE SELECTIONS (2016)
About 30 HA of the 60 HA farm are used for wine production. Frederica and Maralina Paterno recently took over for their father. They work with minimal intervention, using no oenological additives besides low level sulfur. The Sikele Bianco is a white wine that sees some skin contact, giving it its orange color. The juice macerates for about 13 hours on its skins, picking up tannins, aromatics, and color, as well as a slightly heavier weight than most whites. The wine ferments and then ages 6 months in concrete tanks. It then ages another 3 months in bottle before release.
