Borgo Guarini

The hillside nature of the Borgo Guarini vineyards creates different soil and climate conditions according to the different heights at which they are located. Moving from one hill to another not only varies the chemical composition of the soil, but also the entire environment of soil and climate conditions. Wines produced on this estate evoke all the many nuances of this terroir.

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.
