firriato l'ecru sicilia passito 2014



L'Ecru is a natural passito wine produced from Zibibbo grapes. For the vinification of this prestigious label Firriato employs a method of infusion which adds the dried grapes directly to the wine; this is absolutely unique within the field of Italian winemaking. The "raisining" garden at Borgo Guarini forms the backdrop for this unique process. Sun and wind define the estate's climate, and their combined action determines the natural drying process of the grapes over about 40 days. The slow drying process favours the concentration of fragrances of Mediterranean scrub in each grape. The grapes are then removed from the stalks and put in the wine to infuse, giving L'Ecru its uniqueness. There are no prolonged, interrupted and restarted fermentations: in contact with the wine the grapes swell up and release their precious aromatic properties, creating an incomparably balanced passito.

L'Ecru is an unusually fine, natural, sweet wine. The glint and sparkle of its rich golden colour bewitch you with their balance of uncommonly elegant Mediterranean fragrances and floral aromas. The infusion technique is what makes L'Ecru so throroughly agreeable, showing up in the elegant bouquet of intense fragrances that exquisitely erupt in the glass with composite and sophisticated notes. On the palate it displays aromatic notes of honey, orange blossom, and citronella that delicately unite with the fragrances of dates and orange peel. L'Ecru is a genuine joy for the senses that keeps its freshness and supporting acidity completely intact.
