Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of yellow flowers, white melon. Well-balanced palate, with good acidity and a soft texture. Fresh, intense fruit and citrus fruit flavors, with notes of sweet spices and Mediterranean herbs on the finish.
My Notes:

About Baglio del Cristo di Campobello:

In Baglio del Cristo di Campobello: thirty hectares of vineyards of the land of the Sicily of Agrigento; a one and only organism of ten micro-areas, a unified possession of fifty hectares of land at Campobello di Licata. A deep terrain, limestone and chalk, on hills ranging from 230 to 270 meters above sea-level and at 8,000 meters from the coast.

Some 5,000 vines per hectare: all patriarchal firstborn of our Motherland, each and every one hand-harvested into small crates. High lineage of Agrigento, day after day, nurtured.

Spiritual morphology.
