About Elios Modus Bibendi Macerato Bianco
Elios Modus Bibendi Macerato Bianco is a blend of Catarratto, Zibibbo, and Grillo. Skin contact for 20 days. Aromatic and structured. Medium-bodied, dry, a fresh-style orange wine with a nose of stonefruit. The palate displays ripe apricots and oranges balanced with drying tannic properties from grape seeds and skins during maceration. Savory and slightly oxidative on the finish. Hand-harvested from vines grown in chalky clay soils at ideal phenolic maturity: Grillo and Zibbibbo are harvested in the last week of August, while Catarratto in the second week of September. The wine sits on its lees for 7 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Elios was born from the passion of two young Sicilian friends, Guido Grillo and Nicola Adamo. Both were dissatisfied with their jobs, fed up with working for other people’s dreams. Guido and Nicola have a love for natural wines. Despite coming from different backgrounds, what they had in common was a love of nature and of Sicily and the desire to revitalize their families’ agricultural holdings, which up to that point had been under the thumb of the industrial groups to which we sold our grapes and olives for next to nothing. The 8-hectare vineyard is located in the rolling hills west of Palermo. Modus Bibendi was born from the strong conviction that wine should be made through natural vinifications and little to no intervention or use of chemicals.
