Salina Bianco IGT “Tenuta Valdichiesa” 2018 – Salvatore D’Amico
Straw yellow colour. Floral and fruity scents come to the nose, in particular, reminiscent of hawthorn and tropical fruit, together with a pleasant almond nuance. On the palate it is fresh but still balanced, characterized by the aromas of melon and pear, which in the aftertaste leave room for the return of the almond.
The Salina Tenuta Valdichiesa d’Amico is a bland of Catarratto 50%, Insolia 40%, Malvasia delle Lipari and other traditional grapes 10%.
