Baglio di Grisi recalls its name to the word Grisi that comes from the Greek word “Krysos” meaning “Gold”, which later became in the Byzantine period “Grysòs”, “Golden Land”, where the word “Gold” refers precisely to the richness of the fertile and cultivated land, which have made these places full of charm and magic. The origin of this name seems to be referred to an ancient Arabic legend according to which - in a cave near the Feudo Disisa - a huge treasure would be hidden, left there from Saracen people when in 1091 the Norman kicked them out from the Island.

The grapes are picked and collected in trays when fully ripe.

They are destemmed and chilled, then transferred to fermentation vessels where – with the use of selected yeasts - the alcoholic fermentation takes place over 8-12 days at a temperature of 24°-28° C. During this time, the must is frequently pumped over the skins cap in order to extract maximum aromas and colour.

The resulting wine is aged for 10 months in small French oak barrels and 3 months in the bottle.

Food pairing

It pairs very well various meat stews, its silky, slightly sweet character makes it excellent also with white meats and even some dessert dishes.
