Paccamora Paccamora Alcamo Bianco

Sicilia

Paccamora

Paccamora means ‘immediately’ in Sicilian...

The wines, with their fresh, forward fruit, are as Sicilian as the name. They are made by Alberto Antonini at Curatolo Arini. These smartly packaged wines offer great value, and a strikingly Sicilian personality.

Vineyards

The vineyard is located in the western part of Sicily, in the area of Alcamo, at 350m above sea level. Soils are sandy and rich in clay.  Vines are east facing and trained on a vertical trellis system.

Vintage information

The summer of 2013 was quite cool, with temperatures below average. The unusual absence of warm southern winds caused a delay in the ripening of the grapes. Harvest started at the beginning of September and lasted two weeks.

Vinification

After destemming and skin maceration at low temperatures (6°C-8°C) , the grapes were gently pressed and then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Pale lemon with a hint of green. Refined and delicate on the nose with fresh aromas of fruit and wild flowers. On the palate, the wine is fresh with vibrant citrus notes.  It is well balanced and finishes with an intriguing mineral note.
