Federico II by Milazzo is a refined wine, it has a pale straw yellow color with green reflections. Very fine perlage, excellent olfactory intensity, in which sweet hints of pastry, dried fruit reminiscent of almond and spiciness tending towards woody can be distinguished. Fresh, light and persistent in the mouth with a slightly savory finish.
In a unique and inimitable terroir, 400 m. above sea level, in the heart of Sicily, there are 75 hectares of vineyards owned by the Milazzo family, where the climatic characteristics of the hill and the morphology of the land combine with the beneficial influences of a typically Mediterranean climate, with mild summers and not harsh winters; a constant and light breeze, which favors the day-night temperature range and good ventilation of the plant. A territory characterized by a particular concentration of morphologically varied soils: from dark clays integrated with organic substance to white calcareous ones; some with constant and homogeneous fertility, the others ideal for guaranteeing rich and complex aromatic profiles to the wines. With a history that spans five generations and continues in the name of valorising the company tradition, thanks to the commitment of Giuseppina Milazzo and Saverio Lo Leggio, united in the desire to give continuity to the virtuous evolution of the family business, the most interesting aspect of the way of "making wine" is represented by tireless work in the vineyard. The natural improvement of the vines is the result of a technical process that has been going on for over fifty years, which has made them the first producers of sparkling wines with the classic method in Sicily, and the first Sicilian winemakers, between the end of the seventies and the beginning of the eighties, to enhance winemaking from native Sicilian vines. Organic and sustainable. The BIO certification seals the commitment that they have always put into the field as winemakers to produce quality and is also testimony to the responsibility they feel of being custodians of the environment in which they operate, with the precise intention of producing a great Sicilian Classic Method sparkling wine .
"Federico II" is the flagship classic method of the Milazzo winery, a very complex and articulated sparkling wine, with enormous evolutionary potential, capable of competing with the most prestigious Champagnes. The pressing takes place with whole bunches with valorization only of the first pressings, subsequently the must ferments partly in steel and partly in oak barriques. Malolactic fermentation is not carried out to preserve its freshness. Subsequently, the wine is assembled, the liqueur de tirage is added and it is placed in stacks where it matures for 6-7 years on the yeasts.
