Tasting Notes

At Gorghi Tondi, a profound connection with the natural landscape, characterised by the High, Middle, and Low whirlpools (or 'Gorghi') that inspired the winery's name, is evident. This area has been safeguarded as a natural oasis by the WWF since 1998, boasting a rich diversity of avian and aquatic species and an intriguingly unique flora. Zibibbo DOC Sicilia is an organic white wine crafted through vinification and ageing in stainless steel tanks. It exhibits a brilliant yellow hue with hints of green. This wine is both aromatic and enveloping, offering fruity notes of almond, apricot, orange blossom, and sage. The palate experience is equally fragrant, characterised by a harmonious equilibrium between acidity and flavours, making it a delightful expression of Zibibbo grapes.

Tenuta Gorghi Tondi

On sunny days, strolling through the vineyards, one can almost hear the reverberations of Dora's extraordinary voice. Dora, the Sala's great-grandmother, held the key to all the secrets and wonders concealed within her beloved land. It was she who bequeathed this profound love for Sicily, its enigmatic mysteries, and its inherent beauty to her descendants. Today, with unwavering dedication, Annamaria and Clara carry forth the legacy of their family. They protect and nurture the dream that has long bound the name Sala to Sicily's illustrious tradition of crafting the highest quality wines. Gorghi Tondi, nestled within a natural reserve, is a place of profound complexity where the sea, sun, and earth unite harmoniously. Here, the grapes absorb extraordinary fragrances before being masterfully transformed with a vision firmly set on the future. The result is a wine that etches itself into the memory of anyone fortunate enough to savor it. This is an extraordinary testament to the Sala family's passion and commitment to Sicily and its exceptional, quality wines.
