Enimgatic, eccentric, and unexpected, Bianco di Morgante is a white wine vinified entirely from Nero d'Avola, Sicily's most noble red grape. The grapes for this wine are pressed gently and matured in stainless steel tanks to retain their fresh aromas.Pale straw yellow in color with silver highlights. Very elegant on the nose, with pleasant floral and fresh fruit aromas, especially pear and tropical fruits. On the palate, the wine reveals layers of concentrated fruit backed by racy acidity and a refreshing saline and mineral character.

The Morgante winery represents one family's initiative to employ five generations of viticultural experience. In 1994, Antonio Morgante, with the enthusiasm of his sons, Carmelo and Giovanni, decided to vinify their vineyard grapes. This decision represented the beginning of a strong commitment to achieve the best results with indigenous grapes while keeping an eye toward innovation. In 1997, the family hired Riccardo Cotarella as their winemaker. Cotarella, widely recognized for his work crafting compelling wines from Italy's native varietals, shares the Morgante passion for producing great red wines from Nero d'Avola.
The Morgante winery is located in the pristine countryside of southern Sicily, a hilly region located about 1200-1800 feet above sea level and just 45 miles from the splendid Valley of the Temples of Agrigento. The property comprises 500 acres of vineyards and almond trees, and the region is ideal for viticulture, with a Mediterranean climate and soil that ranges from clay and calcareous to marl.
