2022 Baglio del Cristo di Campobello Laluci
Baglio del Cristo is now seen as one of the best wineries in Sicily, where Sicily is currently seen as a strongly emerging Italian wine region. In 2000, the Bonetta brothers started the first plantings of grape vines in Agrigento. The family wanted to make their dream come true, making wines of the highest quality. This was quite successful, the wines were launched on the market in 2009 and immediately won prizes.
That which is forgotten is as if it never happened. The only thing that exists is memory or - Lalùci -
The Grillo grapes are harvested in 2 runs, namely in August and the first half of September. This is to get a good balance in the wine with beautiful fruit and acidity. The vineyards are located on a hilly terrain, with predominantly calcareous soil at 260 meters above sea level. The vineyard is located in Campobello di Licata at an altitude between 230 and 260 meters above sea level and 8,000 meters from the coast. The vineyard therefore has a unique microclimate where the day / night temperature fluctuation is up to 20 degrees due to sea breeze. Minimal intervention is also required because the sea breeze keeps the vineyard healthy (lice, fungi) and therefore this Grillo is seen as one of the very best Sisicilian Grillo.
The grapes are harvested by hand in small crates. After destemming and crushing, the temperature of the must is reduced to 8-10oC for maceration. this ensures a better and quiet extraction of all aromas. A light pressing follows, after which the free-run wine is separated and decanted by the process of natural sedimentation at low temperature. The wine then remains on the lees for four months (sur lie).
in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and bottled for at least three months before becoming available.
The Baglio del Cristo di Campobello Laluci Grillo has intense aromas of yellow and white flowers that take on mineral notes, passing into citrus fruit, white peach, pear and green apple. A truly beautiful wine
