Precision viticulture and respectful oenology are emblems of the Di Gaetano family’s production philosophy, an original product of which is Santagostino Baglio Sorìa Bianco. This is a label that has raised Firriato’s renown and reputation in all four corners of the world. It is a blend of Catarratto, the most diffuse native Sicilian white grape variety, and Chardonnay, the non-native international variety which has best adapted to the island. The mineral content from the Baglio Sorìa soils blends in balance with the freshness of the floral and fruity fragrances of the Catarratto, and the rich complex body of the Chardonnay’s bouquet. The particular fragrance envelops the palate making Santagostino Baglio Sorìa Bianco a rare example of high quality oenology in the field of Sicilian winemaking and producing. The result is a wine with elegant and sophisticated character.
