PRODUCTION AREA: South-western Sicily, Contessa Entellina estate and neighboring territories.
DENOMINATION: Sicilia Doc Lucido.
GRAPES: Lucido (synonym of Catarratto). The name Lucido is the one used historically to design this ancient Sicilian variety. LANDS AND CLIMATE: altitude from 200 to 400 m a.s.l .; hilly orography; clayey soils with sub-alkaline reaction (pH from 7.5 to 7.9) rich in nutrients (potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, manganese, zinc) and total limestone from 20 to 35%). Mild winters; dry and windy summers with strong temperature variations between day and night.
VINEYARD: espalier training with spurred cordon pruning, leaving 6 to 10 buds per plant. Density of 4,500-6,000 plants per hectare, with yields of about 75-85 quintals per hectare.
VINTAGE: Contessa Entellina recorded 615 mm of rain in the 2021 vintage, just under the 645 mm average * of this area: rainfall was concentrated in winter, particularly in February and March, while spring was been dry; in this season the delicate phases of flowering and fruit set took place regularly. At the end of June there was a slowdown in the vegetative phase of the plants, which was then compensated by the lower temperatures in July. A heat wave in the first two weeks of August accelerated ripening. The entire vegetative-production cycle was accompanied by intense and careful work in the vineyard and thus ended regularly. The quantity of grapes produced is slightly higher than in 2020 which - it must be remembered - was below the average. The quality is fully in line with the company objectives, oriented towards quality productions. * The rainfall data are collected by SIAS, Sicilian Agrometeorological Service; we consider the rainfall recorded from 1 October to 30 September of the following year; the average is calculated starting from the 2003 harvest.
HARVEST: the Lucido (Catarratto) destined for the production of Prio was harvested from 9 to 17 September.
VINIFICATION: fermentation in steel at a temperature of 14-16 ° C. Aging in tanks for two months and then for three months in the bottle before being marketed.
ANALYTICAL DATA: alcohol 12.23% vol - total acidity 5.40 g / l - pH 3.26.
TASTING NOTES (24/01/2022): Prio 2021 has a bright straw yellow color. It stands out for a fragrant bouquet with pleasant citrus hints (cedar and grapefruit) combined with delicate floral notes of elderberry. The mouth is fresh with a perfect taste olfactory correspondence.
LONGEVITY: to be enjoyed within 3 years.
FOOD & WINE: excellent with raw fish, fried vegetables and fish. Also try it with rice and chicken salad. Serve it in glasses of medium size and medium height. It can be uncorked at the moment, excellent at 9-11 ° C.
COLLECTION Fresh and Original: pleasant wines with a Sicilian soul. When you want to color your day in an original and pleasant way. A little daily luxury. A discovery to share with friends.
DIALOGUE WITH ART: joy, happiness is the meaning of prio in the Sicilian dialect. It is the unexpected and authentic joy of a woman, sitting on a beach at sunset on an early summer day, gently kissed by a butterfly that lands on her face. An intriguing and sensual label like Donnafugata's Lucido.
FIRST VINTAGE: 2014.
