Vendemmia Tardiva Alcamo"CIELO DALCAMO" DOC in Box Rapitalà
Awards and honors
Alcamo Cielo is a wine that praises the DOC denomination. It is produced with Sauvignon grapes, that are left on the plants drying in order to reach the ideal concentration of sugar. The local formation of the so called “noble mould” (Botrytis Cinerea) on the grapes characterizes the product. The white wine making starts with soft pressing, followed by static decanting. The fermentation process is slow and long (it reaches 4 weeks too) due to the high concentration of sugar. It is managed in inox containers at controlled temperature.
