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.
