ZIBIBBO SECCO 'ORANGE' ABBAZIA SAN GIORGIO 2022 DESCRIPTION

"Orange" of Saint George Abbey is such in name and in fact. Its uniqueness lies in its origin, namely vineyards that are located in Pantelleria, an island halfway between Italy and Africa, so fascinating with its volcanic soils and vine tree farms, which have become a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2014. The winery Abbazia San Giorgio is a small reality that rises in Khamma, in the north-west of the island, created by Battista and Beppe, who had the desire to enhance especially the Zibibbo through a completely biological management with biodynamic principles. Precision, simplicity and transparency are values that are immediately transmitted through the bottle, which has a minimalist and elegant label.

Abbazia San Giorgio "Orange" comes from the grapes of Zibibbo, an autochthonous Sicilian grape, famous above all for the passito. The vines are scattered over 3 hectares of vineyards in tiny particles 300 meters above sea level, on soils rich in organic substances because volcanic. The manual harvest begins in September and the grapes are de-stemmed and pressed to be ready for spontaneous fermentation. The maceration in contact with the skins lasts 15/20 days, during which no sulfur is added. The aging is partly in steel silos and partly in chestnut barrels for 6 months. In the bottling phase neither filtration nor clarification takes place.
