A historic international varietal that expresses the unique and persuasive character of the Mediterranean. Sambuca di Sicilia, in the province of Agrigento. It prefers drained terrain with little sunlight in order to protect the delicacy of and fragrances of its fragile bouquet. The type of farming is "Espalier”, used with an average density of planting where there are 4500 plants per 2.5 Acres.
Wine maker notes
100% Merlot. It is a varietal that matures around the middle of September. Collected from the grapes of perfect phenolic and aromatic maturity. De-stemming and alcoholic fermentation with the skins occurs at 80 degrees for 10 days. Malolactic maturation occurs with selected bacteria, then finally maturation for 10 months in French barriques that are at least 2-3 years old.

Food pairing
Pairs well with seasonal cold cuts, vegetable soup, grilled meats, roasts, boiled meats and savory cheeses. Its delicate structure and the light character of fragrant fruit makes the Merlot the ideal companion for a dish that would ordinarily not be easily paired like a timbale of tagliolini and artichokes.

Producer
Celebrated for its hot sunny climate, historic monuments and rich culinary tradition, Sicily has been producing rich flavored and full-bodied wines since Greek and Roman times. Well known for its warm Mediterranean climate, hot sun, intense sun-light, and fertile soil, Sicily has blossomed into one of the world’s most promising wine regions. Arancio cultivates its own grapes in two large estates along the windy south coast of the island. A total of 1,700 acres of estate vineyards are planted in single varietal fields in order to offer 100% single varietal wines to the final consumer. Arancio’s new state-of-the-art facilities are utilized to take full advantage of what this bountiful land has to offer. A new generation of talented and passionate Sicilian winemarkers and vineyard managers produce Arancio wines that are consistent representations of Sicilian and International varietals grown in the hot Sicilian climate. Arancio wines are well reviewed by all major international magazines, year after year.
