Sikelé Skin-Contact 2019
Summer in a bottle! 13 hours spent on the skins, this orange wine has beautiful complexity and texture. The aromas are reminiscent of sunny Mediterranean days with pine, tropical fruit, and honey. Rich on the palate with orange, juicy peach, almond, and a touch of salt.
The estate was founded in 2001 on a hill formerly known as Poggio dei Fossi in the southeastern Sicilian province of Siracusa. Today the Paternò sisters, Marilina and Federica, are at the helm. Their philosophy reflects a deep respect for the land, with organic farming and natural winemaking. They have been influenced by Frank Cornelissen, the guru of natural winemaking on Mount Etna
