Alastro takes its name from a wild flower that grows around our cellar "Planeta". It is a blend composed by 70% Grecanico, joined to aromatic grapes, 15% Grillo and 15% Sauvignon Blanc. Its delicate structure recalls tropical fruits, fresh citrus fruits and white flowers. It praises the denomination Menfi DOC. The fermentation at 15° starts after the soft pressing and the static decanting of the juice. The aging on lees in inox tanks lasts for 6 months.
