Inzolia (or Ansonica) is an Italian grape variety grown in both Sicily and Tuscany. While it is most famous traditionally as an ingredient in the fortified Marsala wines, it is now seen more and more as a crisp, dry white wine, in blends and as a single variety. Inzolia wines are moderately aromatic, and tend to display nutty, citrusy characters with herbal notes.
The vineyards where the Tareni Inzolia grapes are grown, are in the province of Trapani, at an altitude of 160 m above sea level.
Clayey soils, rich in pebbles, yield a velvety white wine with scents of orange blossoms, melon and yellow peaches.
The harvest starts in the first ten days of September. Traditional vinification in white, with soft pressing and fermentation at controlled temperature. 2 months of ageing in stainless steel.
The Pellegrino family has always personally overseen the activities in the vineyard and in the winery, and the family is still today, having reached the seventh generation, involved daily in the management of the company. A long family history made up of respect, care, love and dedication, of values handed down from father to son, which today make it one of the greatest families of Sicilian wine.
The Pellegrino vineyards are located in the westernmost part of Sicily, which is characterized by a great variety of microclimates. The territory boasts the highest vine-covered area in Italy as it is considered the most suitable area of the island for grape growing. Here in fact the intense light, the dry climate, the fresh soils, the winds coming from the south and the strong atmospheric temperature range, create the ideal conditions for the production of quality wines.
It was the Phoenicians who, between the eighth and seventh century BC, introduced vine cultivation in these territories. We are therefore in the cradle of the native Sicilian vines: grillo, inzolia, catarratto, grecanico, zibibbo, malvasia, nero d’avola, nerello mascalese and frappato, these vines have always been used here for the production of great wines.https://www.carlopellegrino.it/en/
