Straw yellow in color with light green reflections. The nose has floral notes of Sicilian Spanish broom flowers and chamomile, with aromas of pear, yellow melon and honey. On the palate, the acidity is well-balanced and has a persistent freshness, with a long finish and unique mineral notes.

Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points

"Aromas of white rose, citrus zest and honeydew take center stage in this crisp white. These tones follow over to the savory palate along with apricot, green melon, lemon rind and a mineral note. Bright acidity keeps it refreshing and balanced."

Vintage, Vinification & Technical Information

Vintage Report: Light rains persisted through spring and into early summer leaving organic farming a challenge with vineyard management and early phenolic development. The constant wind at Montoni helped dry the morning mist off the vines and the small, tightly wound berry clusters. Afternoon exposure to bright sunshine assisted the vines and fruit to mature beautifully over the growing months of summer and into early fall. In the end, the vintage proved to be at optimal balance of alcohol and acidity; producing wines that are fresh, fine and elegant.

Fermentation: 100% in cement containers, in contact with the skins for a quarter of the fermentation process.

Grape(s): 100% Inzolia

Aging: Sur lie with batonnage in cement containers for 6 months.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Winery Profile

About the Winery: Feudo Montoni has been producing top-quality wines on its historic grounds since 1469, and is currently overseen by Fabio Sireci, the third generation of a family dedicated to producing the most refined expressions of this long-cultivated terroir. Rosario Sireci purchased the Feudo Montoni estate in the late 1800s upon discovering a wealth of ancient vines and passed down the property and closely held “secret knowledge” to his son and grandson. “Our wines are manipulated as little as possible by human intervention,” says Fabio Sireci of his family’s methods, which employ the “cru concept” of bottling a wine from the best grapes in a single vineyard. Feudo Montoni’s pre-phylloxera vineyard, for example, is planted with native Nero d’Avola clones.

Today, the certified organic winery produces many of Italy’s most celebrated 100% indigenous varietals—Perricone, Nerello Mascalese, Catarratto, Grillo, Inzolia and Passito—in addition to the purest expression of Nero d’Avola.
