Bye Bye Baby
Bye Bye Baby - Catarratto, Grillo
The grapes of this wine are carefully selected in harvest boxes and then carefully checked in the cellar. Bye Bye Baby is pale straw yellow in color with a fine perlage and good persistence. On the nose, it reveals aromatic and exotic fruit notes with delicate floral hints. In the mouth, it is intriguing, with an excellent balance between acidity and freshness which enhances its persistence.
The name and label of this wine were inspired by the story of the Teste di Moro (Moor’s heads). According to the legend, a girl fell in love with a Moor, who returned her feelings. Despite the passion, this love story was destined to be brief.The girl eventually discovered that her beloved had to go back to the East, where his wife and children were waiting for him. Consumed by anger and jealousy, the girl murdered the Moor while he was asleep, decapitating him.The man's head would later be used as a pot for a basil plant.
