Didyme

Estate Capofaro

Didyme

Vintage 2020

Malvasia harvested at just the right stage of ripeness and immediately made into wine. A dry wine with a good acidity that exalts its flavour, with aromatic herbal and floral notes that recall the island’s typical Mediterranean maquis. An expression of this volcanic territory in its essence. For this reason, Didyme bears the ancient name of the island of Salina.
