Tonnino's Mediterraneo is a white wine made from 100% Chenin Blanc grapes that are farmed in Sicily. The ground where the grapes grow is sandy with clay and an alkaline reaction. Grapes are farmed using espalier with guyot pruning and are harvested in early September when the grapes are fully ripened.The grapes are then vinified with a ten day maceration at controlled temperatures. After racking, the wine is matured in stainless steel tanks and then in oak tonneaux before bottling. The Mediterraneo is intense and shining in color with scents reminiscent of the Mediterranean like peach and honey intertwined with sweet jasmine flowers. This wine is best served at 10 to 12 degrees Celius with fish, crustaceans and white meats.
