Mozia – Sicilia DOC
Mozia is born in the Whitaker Estate of Tasca d’Almerita, located on the small island of Mozia, within the Natural Reserve of the Stagnone of Marsala. The vines grow on eight hectares of sandy soil, rich in limestone, in a peculiar habitat between salt pans and sea. The unique position of the vineyards gives the wine an unmistakable profile: the ripe fruit meets the salty and brackish notes of the sea, creating a blend of great personality, a true expression of a unique terroir.
The wine is straw-yellow in color, bright and shiny. The bouquet is rich and multifaceted, with floral scents, lime and citrus aromas, fruity notes, and iodine hints that recall the sea breeze. The taste is characterized by a savory freshness, with juicy and persistent notes of ripe yellow fruit, which melt into a pleasantly brackish finish.
The wine fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for about 15 days. Afterward, the wine matures in stainless steel in the presence of fine lees for about 5 months before being bottled.
