Description

In 1880 Paolo Pellegrino, local notary and vine grower, founded his winery in the heart of the city of Marsala on the West coast of Sicily. With the help of his son Carlo, he built the company up from nothing into one of Sicily’s leading Marsala producers. After the death of his father, Carlo took the reigns of the company, assisted by his wife Josephine Despagne, daughter of a famous Sauternes oenologist Oscar Pierre Despagne. Josephine brought with her a wealth of winemaking knowledge and together they continued to build the company. Today the company has 150 hectares of vineyards, and 3 wineries all of which are solar-powered. The family have always recognised the importance and uniqueness of the region’s terroir and indigenous varietals. In 2010 they started exhaustively researching and experimenting with these varietals in their 150 ha’s of vineyard. The result was the “family estates” range, launched in 2014.

TASTING NOTES

The colour of this white wine is straw yellow. The bouquet has an intense aroma of jasmine and lavender, with hints of green apples and citrons. The flavour is dry and fresh, with a long lingering taste of citrus fruit, yellow peaches and green apples.
