SANTAGOSTINO BAGLIO SORìA

IGT Sicilia

The Baglio Sorìa Estate is home to one of Firriato’s oenological treasures—a quintessentially Sicilian red that has seduced wine lovers the world over with its pleasing complexity and its perfect balance between freshness and alcohol content. Rich in fruitiness and elegance it is a pioneering Sicilian blend of international and native grape varieties. The terroir in which it grows, its proximity to the coast, and the prevalence of clay and red marl in its soil contribute to creating climate and soil conditions that are unique in the agricultural setting of western Sicily. Santagostino Baglio Sorìa Rosso is the fruit of this uniqueness, remaining true to itself over more than thirty vintages. Harvest after harvest, it proves to be the emblematic symbol of Firriato’s oenological style with its impenetrable ruby red colour, releasing elegant nuances and velvety tannins in the glass.
