Caravaglio Salina IGP Bianco
Caravaglio's 2022 Salina IGP Bianco comes from the picturesque Salina, one of the sun-kissed Aeolian Islands off the northern coast of Sicily. Famed for its volcanic soils and breezy Mediterranean climate, Salina provides an idyllic environment for the cultivation of indigenous grapes, particularly the aromatic Malvasia delle Lipari. This white wine, under the meticulous craftsmanship of Caravaglio, tells a story of an island where the vines have battled both volcanic eruptions and salty sea sprays to give wines of unique character. The winery's commitment to organic farming and respect for nature ensures that each bottle is a true representation of Salina's terroir.
Nose: The nose is alluring, dominated by aromatic notes of white flowers, ripe stone fruits, and a hint of sea breeze. Delicate traces of citrus and Mediterranean herbs add complexity to the aromatic profile.
Palate: On the palate, the wine is fresh and vibrant, with flavors of peach, apricot, and a touch of honeyed sweetness, complemented by saline minerality inherent to the island's terroir. The wine’s acidity balances its aromatic richness, providing structure and vivacity.
Finish: The finish is long and harmonious, echoing the flavors of sun-ripened fruits, herbs, and the unmistakable hint of the sea.
The 2022 Caravaglio Salina IGP Bianco, with its aromatic richness and mineral undertones, pairs beautifully with seafood dishes. Think grilled prawns, calamari, or a classic Mediterranean fish stew. The wine's aromatic profile also complements salads with citrus dressing, fresh cheeses, and pasta with light herb-infused sauces.
