The Insolia is, among the Sicilian native varieties, the one which offers more organoleptic guarantees. It indeed distinguishes itself for the cleanness of the fragrance and the particularly long aromatic hold, besides being characterized by the fact that it can ripen in relatively hot areas without encountering premature acid fallings, typical phenomenon of the white berry variety grown in the same latitudes. For the Sallier de la Tour company, Insolia represents the white wine which above all is perfect on all the occasions and can be enjoyed within the second summer after its harvest.
