Description:

The names of our wines are strongly tied with history of the family and of the lands where we grow our vineyards. Castello Svevo is a name inspired by a real castle, Castello di Chiaramonte di Siculiana, near Agrigento. A fortress built in the XII century and hunting ground of the emperor Federico II, to whom is dedicated our most prestigious traditional method sparkling wine.

SENSORY PROFILE

It shows an endearing ruby red. To the nose reveals scent of red roses and fruity notes of blackberry and sour cherry, with black peppercorn and undergrowth. A pleasant acidic freshness and overall balance of  taste.
