Cusumano Salealto Tenuta Ficuzza 2020
Salealto traces the history of King Ferdinand IV of Bourbon and the Real Casina di Caccia of Ficuzza. In this place, in 1800, the sovereign kept his own wine, produced with grapes from vineyards located in the surroundings of our Ficuzza estate. We imagiined how the wine drunk by the King could have been, and after a few years of experimentation Salealto was born; a "vin du terroir" obtained from Insolia, Grillo and Zibibbo in equal parts, vinified separately and then regined together.

Colour

Straw yellow.

Bouquet

The nose is dedicated to the floral nuances of orange blossom and fruity nuances of apricot, sage, fern and sweet almond with saline sediments.

Flavour

Slender and delicate, with consistent aromatic returns to pervade the sip. Grapes vinified separately in steel.

Pairing

Fish
Shellfish
Cheese
Matured cheese
