Passito

Passito

A true challenge: Gewürztraminer and Sémillon, two uncommon vines for Sicily, yet selected by Giacomo Tachis and used in equal proportions to bring to life a passito wine atypical for the island. Sémillon on its own would be too sugary. The Gewürztraminer, with its acidity, perfectly balances the wine, leaving the mouth clean. Label drawn by Gianfranco Ferrè.
