Dear Wine Lover,
We are almost sure you never tried this great white wine before, Family and friends 2017 from Feudo Maccari! Did you?
Actually this wine wasn't even supposed to be released on the market and was just meant to be enjoyed by the producer together with his family and friends, as the name already suggests. Family and Friends was born from an idea of the owner Dr Antonio Moretti. We know Dr Moretti very well as he is also owner of Orma and Tenuta Sette Ponti (Oreno), and talking with him he told us about this great white wine he makes in his estate in Sicily, but up to now only for his beloved ones.
After having tasted it and after being amazed by its great quality we agreed to serve it blind during last years Art Basel to all our top clients, so we did and it was really great to hear our clients guesses about the provenience. Most of them thought they were drinking a Premier Cru from Burgundy as it is a very fresh and deep white wine with pleasant mineral components. Even funnier was to see the reaction when we revealed that they were drinking a white wine from Sicily made of 100% autochthonous grape variety Grillo. I can also reveal that nobody guessed it right, but that everybody liked the wine very much. So much that we had to convince Dr Moretti to give us a small allocation of his family cuvée as we had so many clients who wanted to buy the wine by cases! And after some months of discussion Dr Moretti fulfilled our wish and those of our clients by sending us some quantities of this absolute perfect white wine.
