Santagostino Baglio Soria Bianco
Blend: 55% Cataratto + 50% Chardonnay
From: Italy, Sicily
Probably the most iconic wines from the Firriato winery. An award winning wine that perfectly represents the soul and the values of the winery. Traditionally Sicilian but today produced with a modern international approach. This blend of Cataratto, a typical Sicilian grape and Chardonnay has won awards from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Guida Veronelli and Gambero Rosso for many different vintages.
The beautiful Baglio Sorìa estate is located next to Trapani overlooking the glistening Mediterranean sea. The mineral soil gives freshness to the floral and fruity fragrances of the Cataratto, which balance the rich complex body of the Chardonnay’s bouquet. Elegant and complex scents of peach, melon, almond, pineapple, and white wild flowers are soon taken over with hints of butter, vanilla and hazelnut.
To taste the wine is rich of fruit and supported by an extremely distinct and balanced acidity for a long lasting finish.
