L’Ecrù 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.
Intense golden yellow tending to amber.
You can smell fine scents of orange blossomm honey, candied orange peels and dried figs, dates, peaches in syrup, which bland harmoniously with delicate hints of lemon grass, marjoram, sage, oregano and oriental spices.
An enchanting texture that unfolds almost with a whisper with oll the class of its noble lineage; the expression of warm sun of Sicily enriched by subtle yet deep nuances of the sea and fruit that are both suave and exciting.
