Notes from the Producer:

This distinctive wine is made from 100% White Muscat grapes (Canelli), fermented to complete dryness. Its floral bouquet and the long fruity finish make Sirio one of the best aromatic wines of Italy. Perfect as an aperitif, it also compliments shellfish and seafood in general. Perfect with asparagus, it also matches well with most Asian dishes. It was first made in 1990 and since then has been one of the most characteristic Vignalta wines. It has a floral bouquet and a long finish.

About the Producer:

Vignalta was founded in 1980 by Lucio Gomiero who concluded after years of tasting great Bordeaux wines, that anything Pomerol could do, he could do just as well. Colli Euganei, located in the Northwest region of Italy, shares the same lines of latitude with Bordeaux, therefore it is not surprising that these varietals flourish there.

The estate consists of 123 acres, with diverse vineyard holdings on almost all of the south-facing slopes of the Colli Euganei. Of the 40 suppliers in the area, Vignalta is the only one to diversify their vineyard holdings, taking advantage of all of the unique soil/varietal combinations in the area. Colli Euganei is distinguished by its group of bizarrely shaped hills which rise isolated from the Venetian plain. 'Colli' is Italian for 'hills' and 'Vignalta' translates to 'high vines.'
