Mortellito is in Val di Noto, in a corner of Sicily that lies at the same latitudes as North Africa’s arid desert climate. Its vineyards are a few kilometers from the coast, with grooves of ancient olive and almonds trees breaking the wind off the sea; abandoned and still working fishing ports dot the landscape. Owner Dario Serrentino has always enjoyed the contrasts of this coastal growing area, which he calls ‘a desert next to the beach.’

The wine is 100% Moscatella di Noto with just 2 days of maceration with the skins. It's left to continue fermenting without temperature control, producing a fresh and floral "Intro to Orange" Wine as we like to say around here.
