Overview

Its name is taken from the wild shrub which covers the valleys around Lake Arancio with its yellow flowers in springtime. It is a single variety Grecanico, produced from the historic 25-year old Ulmo Vineyard, and thus able to express to the utmost the unique characteristics of this noble and ancient Sicilian grape. Elegant, balanced and austere, this is the ideal companion for the rich Mediterranean cuisine.
