This wine is a challenge, born almost as a joke. Everyone says Passerina is a grape destined to make inexpensive innocuous white whites and the it cannot produce quality.
With the desire to demonstrate that, working well in the vineyard, keeping the crop low and with careful vinification, it was also possible to bring out quality from this grape we tried some alternative vinifications.
2 days of skin contact, spontaneous fermentation in used tonneau and aging on lies for 16 months has thrilled us and has become our Offida DOCG Passerina.
Zaccarì has been the nickname of our family for 4 generations. An intense wine both on the nose and in the mouth, characterized by an elegant but present tannin and a bold long acidic finish . On the label "Cactuses Hunters" of the artist Emilio Patalocchi.
