Passito di Pantelleria Sole di Agosto Marco De Bartoli
Marco De Bartoli often repeated that the indispensable element for obtaining his passport in Pantelleria was the "August sun", just the month when Bukkuram began to dry the grapes. Hence the name of the wine. 50% of the grapes are drowned in sunshine for at least two weeks. The remaining part ripens on the plant until September. At advanced fermentation, previously dried grapes are added to the wine, several times, and left to macerate for about three months. For 6 months in barriques and 6 months in steel tub. The Sole di Agosto has golden yellow color. The nose is an explosion of perfumes ranging from bergamot, to raisins to spices. The mouth is sweet, balanced and clean, with a long floral finish.
We taste the Sun of August at a temperature of 10/12 ° in sauternes glasses for sweet wines. The Passito di Pantelleria Sole d'Agosto is to be sawn but will express its best in a few years. We recommend keeping it in a horizontal position in a fresh, humid and dark cellar.
Great for accompanying seasonal fruit, cream desserts, dry pastry and dark chocolate.

The vineyards are located 12 km from Marsala and on the island of Pantelleria, in the Bukkuram district, which in Arabic means the father of the vineyard. Cultivated vineyards are only Sicilian native; From Grillo, used to produce the various versions of Marsala and the Samperi line, at the Zibibbo bred in Pantelleria and used for the pass and the Bukkuram line.
