PERPETUAL WHITE WINE

Altrimenti is Menfi’s traditional "house wine" produced with the technique of perpetual aging in a single oak barrel, where a 25-30% of younger wine is added every year to the older wine that is already being aged.

Made with grapes grown in Dietro le Case vineyard, this wine testifies to the complex personality and extraordinary aging capacity of Inzolia, the most traditional and identifying grape variety of Menfi’s terroir.
