Description

Funaro Passo di Luna

Funaro Passo di Luna is bright straw-yellow in colour with light greenish hues. A rousing bouquet due to its extremely elegant fragrance; well-orchestrated and delicate mouthfeel, fresh and rich in flavour, early-drinking, fresh and aromatic finish.

The Inzolia grapes come from the area of Salemi, located at an altitude of about 150 meters above sea level. The soil, rich in organic substances, has a loamy structure. The Zibibbo grapes come from the area of Santa Ninfa, located at an altitude of about 400 meters above sea level. The terrain, which is hilly, is primarily clayey-chalky with a good percentage of clay.

The Inzolia is harvested in early September, whereas the Zibibbo in late September. The grapes are harvested in the coolest hours of the day.

The grapes The grapes are fermented separately in steel tanks maintained at a constant temperature of 15°C. After the grapes have fermented, the wine is matured at a constant temperature. Lastly, the wine is blended before it is aged in the bottle.

The entrepreneurial project headed by Funaro siblings Tiziana, Clemente and Giacomo began in 2003, when they decided to capitalize on the grapes grown in the family vineyard for the past three generations, personally seeing to the production and surrounding themselves with motivated and competent coworkers who make up the current workforce at the Funaro vintner.

Alessandro manages the eco-friendly commercial farm and welcomes guests to the winery; Stefano, Totò, Castrenze, Pietro, Pietrino, Salvatore, Gino and Fabio skilfully care for each single vine and each olive tree; capitalizing on his expertise Rosario, known as Sasà, transforms the grapes into fine wine and oversees the whole production process up to the bottling; Pippo, Calogero and Giacomo, known as Giacomino, assist Rosario in the winery, unloading the grapes which have been gathered and seeing to the whole production process; Mario skilfully organizes the Italian sales network; Tiziana sees to the company management and the fiscal issues; Clemente personally oversees the foreign market, promoting the wines and, above all, the company philosophy. And, last but not least, Giacomo coordinates this likeminded and close-knit team.

“To us fine wine is the fruit of constructive benchmarking and sound cooperation between all team members.”

Alpha Zeta Garganega 2019

Relatively low fermentation temperatures help preserve the fresh fruit character of the grapes. 20% was fermented in large format oak.

On the palate, it is fresh but has surprising depth and a lovely peachy fruit character. A lively, lemonyzest finish offsets the ripe fruit on the palate.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2020

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Domaine Patrick Vauvy Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley 2018

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.
