The Frappato grapes for Baglio Gibellina U Passimiento Terre Siciliane are harvested as soon as they reach maturation, and so that all the typical freshness remains in the must is fermented slowly in small steel tanks making the Baglio Gibellina U Passimiento such a full bodied fruity taste experience.
The Nero d’Avola grapes are left on the vines for a light withering and for natural dehydration to occur. They are late harvested and with extreme care placed in wooden cases.
After a soft pressing, the musts are fermented at a controlled temperature.
The two musts evolve according to their typical features and then are slowly blended to make the Baglio Gibellina U Passimiento.
The natural sweetness of the wines is obtained by interrupting the fermentation through the “cold” process. The wine is then matured for some months in steel tanks.
Baglio Gibellina - the perfect partner to hearty pasta dishes or a hunk of gorgonzola and crusty bread.
