Firriato Charme Bianco IGT Terre Siciliane 2020 Cl 75
Seductive and lively on the palate, intense in fruity aromas, elegant in soul and with lively and intriguing balance. Charme Bianco is a white appreciable for the sunny freshness brought as a dowry by Borgo Guarini’s terroir, particular for its orographic nature and exposure. The estate lends all the minerality that distinguishes its soil to this blend of native grape varieties, designed to favor lightness, freshness and drinkability. Native white grape varieties, harvested earlier than their natural ripeness, give Charme Bianco a very satisfying acidic streak that stands out for its fragrance and sunshine. These are the components that create a smooth texture, ideal for those who intend to approach these Sicilian varieties with elegance.
