Production information

Producer: Caruso & Minini

Caruso & Minini are a part of new revival in Sicilian wine. Smaller wineries have sprung up in the past decade with private investment and a strong interest in the potential of the native grapes from Sicily. One example is Caruso & Minini. When Mario Manini met Stefano Caruso it sparked a long-held dream to produce a wine in the historical winemaking region of Marsala in Western Sicily.

Production note

The grapes are carefully handpicked, gently destemmed and macerated. The grape must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 25°C for 15-20 days. Malolactic fermentation also occurs. The wine is then aged for 8 months (a third in oak casks and two thirds in stainless steel tanks) and is finally aged in bottle for 4 months before release.
