Azienda Agricola Salvatore Marino Turi Bianco 2019
Salvatore respects bio-diversity, and lunar calendar helps make the choices of the right time for the working in the vineyard, all done by hand. HOE AND SCISSORS are the tools I used. Mature organic manure and green manuring are the only form of fertilization utilized. -Salvatore Marino
The Salvatore Marino Turi Bianco is a natural wine made from the Sicilian Catarratto grape. Only native yeasts are used and fermentation is spontaneous. The deep yellow colored white wine has citrus fruit, fresh flowers, bright, banana, tropical fruit and a slight saltiness that make it a perfect pick for seafood or ripe cheeses.
