Marilina Paternò manages the 60 hectares in the Province of Siracusa originally purchased by her father, Angelo. Aside from 35 hectares of grape vines grown organically, Marilina harbors a diversity of species on the property, following the principles of polyculture. Her ‘Sikelè’ is an orange wine made from a single variety, grecanico, known elsewhere in Italy as garganega. Harvested by hand, the grapes macerated for 13 hours, fermenting with indigenous yeasts in concrete tanks. After six months’ aging in concrete and an additional three months in the bottle, the wine sees no fining or filtration and only a minimal amount of sulfur for stabilization. Meadow and almond lead to bright citrus on the palate, with gentle tannins. Certified sustainable, certified organic, low-intervention/natural wine.
