Firriato – Camelot 750 ml

29.80

Camelot’s elegance is the result of lengthy research, over more than 20 years, which Firriato has dedicated to guaranteeing the best climate and soil conditions for growing Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Baglio Sorìa vineyards, located at an altitude of 120metres above sea level, with their vicinity to the Trapani coast and the uniqueness of their terroir, contribute to determining the ideal conditions for the cultivation of these two vines. The red marl in its soils allows the earth, during the hotter months, to remain compact and not crack. This maintains constant humidity in the subsoil which favours a balance between the ripened fruit’s sugar levels and its polyphenols, which is harder to achieve in hotter climates. Ageing for 12 months in French oak barriques gives the wine incomparable aromatic elegance and flavour.
