Vinification Details

  • The grapes used to make this wine are hand harvested in the Sicilian hills at the end of August - beginning of September. The vineyards have a plant density of 3.500 vines per hectare, cultivated with Guyot viticultural technique (both double and single) in the calcareous and clay hills of Sicily, at an altitude of 150 m.

History

  • The grapes are destemmed and pressed prior to being fermented in 300 - 1000 hl tanks at 16-19°C for 8 days. The wine is then stored in stainless steel 3-6 months before bottling.

Regional Information

  • Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Italy's sun-drenched southernmost region has been making wine for over 2500 years. The climate is warm and dry- this, combined with refreshing coastal breezes, means that much of Sicilian wine is made from organic grapes. Sicily's native grape varieties, such as Nero d'Avola and Grillo, are renowned worldwide for their individuality and approachability.
