Lamoresca Bianco-100% vermentino from Sicily, saline and spice
100% vermentino di Corso. Compact and powerful, it packs layers of savoury, saline spice
Lamoresca is the only winery for roughly 50 square kilommeters and Filippo and his farm hand Gaetano work the land by hand with incredibly diligence.
Lamoresca is located in the southern most corner of the province of Catania, between Etna and Gela on the southern coast, at ~450 meters above sea level. The area has a combination of deeply compressed sandstone soils mixed with calcium and iron rich clay. The old vines are a mixture of nero d’avola, grenache and nerocapitano (frappato) for the reds, and the extremely rare vermentino corso and some roussanne for the white; all of which are worked without the aid of any chemical or pesticide. The wines are naturally fermented without temperature control and no sulfur is used at all throughout the process.
