Gabrio Bini Fanino
Grapes: Cataratto, Pignatello
Gabrio Bini’s Azienda Agricola Serragghia is located on the island of Pantelleria, a volcanic mass one hundred kilometres or so south west of Sicily. The vineyards are never treated and are tended by hand and horse, are handpicked and left to ferment long and slowly in terracotta amphorae. They are bottled unfiltered, with no additions. With their distinctive bottles and unwavering quality, they have quickly gained a cult following and there's never enough to go around.
A roughly equal blend of Catarratto and Pignatello grapes which spend seven months on skins in terracotta amphorae from Spain which Gabrio has buried in the vineyard. This displays wonderful clarity and focus, with a hint of tannins and pure flavours of blood orange and wild herbs.
