JASMIN

Sicilia D.O.C.

Zibibbo

Zibibbo is the aromatic variety also suitable for dry vinification with a bouquet that recalls the scents and scents of spring flowers and the savory marine notes coming from the sea. Jasmin is the perfect revelation of all this Mediterranean charm thanks to the particular climatic conditions found on the Borgo Guarini estate within a hillside Terroir and the Baglio Sorìa estate, influenced by the sea. The temperature variations between day and night favor the accumulation of the olfactory components, creating a fascinating suggestion with a strong style and exotic elegance. Jasmin is a wine that invites conviviality and the joy of being together. Jasmine, citrus fruit, mediterraneas fragrances characterize the unique and noble blend of Zibibbo grapes growing on the hill and by the sea.

Production Area

Borgo Guarini

The hilly structure of Borgo Guarini creates different soil climates depending on the altitude in which you are located. Moving from one hill to another varies not only the chemical composition of the soil but also the entire pedoclimatic context. The Baglio Sorìa estate is located a few kilometers from Trapani, in western Sicily, where the cultivation of vines requires that the plants are not excessively loaded, in order to obtain a higher quality of the fruit.

Fragrances, aromas and Sicilian freshness

The virtuous path followed by Firriato since its foundation to enhance native Sicilian vines achieves a step more with Jasmin, a zibibbo grape-based wine expressing the particular sensorial profile of this grape variety. Zibibbo grapes have been historically used to make sweet or sparkling wines but Firriato decided to vinify them to produce still wine enhancing its aromatic profile and making a very drinkable wine. Eclectic soils of the Borgo Guarini estate rich in sodium and clay are the cradle of this aromatic variety composing Jasmin. The natural property of this soil enables Firriato to exalt the variety characteristics expressing the most inner fragrances of orange peel and mature figs together with elegant jasmin notes which name this precious label.
