Info about the wine

2,500 vines per hectare planted between 1950 and 1970 in the district of Bukkuram, Pantelleria, on volcanic, terraced slopes as low, free-standing shrubs raised using the "vite ad alberello" system, which was declared a World Heritage Site of Agriculture by UNESCO on 26 November 2014.

Info about the expansion

Yields are 25 hectolitres per hectare, harvested by hand from mid-August to the first week of September. 50 % of the grapes are dried in the sun for at least three weeks on suitable mats and delimited by thick walls of volcanic rock. The remaining grapes ripen on the plant until September. Once fermentation has begun, the previously dried grapes are added to the base wine and macerated for about three months until a balance is reached between alcohol content and residual sugar. Maturation for at least 30 months in 225-litre French oak barrels and 6 months in stainless steel tanks.

Color

Intense amber with golden reflections.

Nose

The 2014 Bukkuram smells intensely of dried apricots, sweet mango, dates, sultanas, nougat, fir honey and juicy fruit bread. The sweet aromas are rounded off by distinct toasted notes reminiscent of wood smoke, tobacco box and roasted almonds.

Palate

The palate reveals an oily sweetness accompanied by pleasantly fresh orange and citrus notes. What a facet, what a game, a mega-sweet wine that literally leads us to the dishes with which it harmonises.
