Baglio Gibellina U Passimiento is a blend of fresh Frapatto and dried Nero d’Avola grapes grown at high altitude in the Sicilian hills. The rich concentrated red berry fruit is balanced by a lovely freshness.
Baglio Gibellina is situated in picturesque Sicily where its vineyards are surrounded by the hills of Salemi and Santa Ninfa. The landscape is dotted with vineyards, olive groves, citrus trees, juniper trees and fichi d’India trees.
Intense aromas of red and black fruit on the nose with hints of spice. On the palate the wine is rich, round and full-bodied yet balanced by its fresh acidity.
