This ice-cream is made only with a Sicilian wine that we can say is totally ‘virgin’, made with Grillo grapes having a yield of 30 quintals per hectare!
These grapes go to make a highly alcoholic and intensely structured wine, the main characteristics needed for the ageing process.
The wine chosen is De Bartoli's ‘Vecchio Samperi’, similar to a liqueur by virtue of its 17 proof rating obtained both in the field and in the cellar over a period of twenty years. With its totally original organoleptic properties, this ice-cream gives out the intenseness of the wine's fruity aromas and brings to mind the smells of the island it comes from.
