Charme Bianco

IGT Terre Siciliane

Blend of Sicilian native vines

Seductive and vivacious on the palate, it is intense with fruity aromas, with an elegant character and a lively and stimulating balance. Charme Bianco is a white wine appreciated for its sunny freshness which derives from its Borgo Guarini terroir, a location unique in its orographic nature and exposure to the wind. The minerality that distinguishes the estate’s soil is returned in this wine, a blend of native vine varieties produced with an emphasis on lightness, freshness and drinkability. These native white grape vine varieties are harvested before they are fully ripe, giving Charme Bianco a highly satisfying vein of acidity that shines with fragrance and intensity. These elements give life to a wine with a soft structure, ideal for those who undertake to try the elegance of these native Sicilian varieties.

Production Area

Borgo Guarini

Borgo Guarini is the Firriato estate with the most eclectic patchwork of terroirs. There are three different orders of soil in the 165 hectares of the estate. This richness not only allows the right soil for each different vine variety, but also more than one soil for each individual variety.

Charme Bianco

A vivacious and sophisticated blend of Sicilian native varieties

Its provenance, origin, and the earth in which it shoots and grows are what give this wine its personality. Firriato’s constant endeavour to enhance native vine varieties and their unique characteristics deriving from the different terroirs in which they grow, fully comes to the fore in Charme Bianco. The native white grape vine varieties converge in the lively bead of this wine, bestowing the constant pleasure of their most intense aromas. The grapes are authentic products of their terroirs of origin that have been dedicated to viticulture for thousands of years. In this corner of Sicily, on the Borgo Guarini Estate, important elements for their quality are at work. The constant exposure to the wind coming in off the Mediterranean sea, the clayey soil, and the orographic variability are the contributing factors to the uniqueness of the Sicilian white grape varieties that go to create the blend of Charme Bianco. The aromas are more intense, the fragrances more refined in a wine that unites viticultural tradition with the passion of pleasure.Appellation: IGT Terre Siciliane
