The French elegance expressed by Sicilian Terroir


Sicilia D.O.C.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Camelot’s elegance is the result of lengthy research, over more than 20 years, which Firriato has dedicated to guaranteeing the best climate and soil conditions for growing Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Baglio Sorìa vineyards, located at an altitude of 120metres above sea level, with their vicinity to the Trapani coast and the uniqueness of their terroir, contribute to determining the ideal conditions for the cultivation of these two vines. The red marl in its soils allows the earth, during the hotter months, to remain compact and not crack. This maintains constant humidity in the subsoil which favours a balance between the ripened fruit’s sugar levels and its polyphenols, which is harder to achieve in hotter climates. Ageing for 12 months in French oak barriques gives the wine incomparable aromatic elegance and flavour.

Firriato’s Blend

The exceptional combination of the humidity in the subsoil, and the hotter climate of the summer months in Sicily, favours the elegant characteristic notes that make the pleasure of drinking Camelot so unique. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes grown on the Baglio Sorìa Estate are characteristically lower in pyrazines. This trait creates a natural condition that gives Camelot elegance and smoothness, limiting to a minimum the prevalent vegetable notes with nuances of red pepper and tomato leaf. As ever, it is the terroir that determines the elegant development of this Bordeaux vine in Sicilian soil. The relationship between the microclimate and the soil creates the ideal conditions for gradual ripening of the grapes, which influences their complete aromatic development. Camelot is the result of this combination of characteristic notes which completely express Firriato’s style and their desire to create wines that are true embodiments of their terroirs of origin.

Saddle of Rabbit Stuffed with Dried Fruit and Breadcrumbs

Add together the breadcrumbs, and dried fruit and nuts, in a bowl, adding the ½ glass of white wine and 4 spoonfuls of olive oil. Mix together well and set aside a part of the stuffing to garnish the plate on serving. Place the saddle of rabbit on a pastry board and using a meat tenderiser reduce it down to a thickness of about 1cm. Once completed arrange the breadcrumb and dried fruit stuffing inside the meat. Roll up the meat and secure it in place using food grade butcher’s twine or meat netting.
