This wine comes from old vineyards in contrada Pietramarina in Verzella,contrada Caprieri in Castiglione di Sicilia,contrada Zucconero and contrada Daini in Solicchiata,contrada Allegracore in Randazzo,contrada Friera in Linguaglossa,both in the north side of Mount Etna, between 550 and 930 mt. a.s.l
Today, we are in our seventh harvest ! We work 4.5 ha divided into 8 vineyards at different heights and districts. We continue to recover old vineyards cultivated for 90% with traditional sapling. Today the company believes in the importance of a continuous comparison and sharing with other producers, in the knowledge of other territories and other varieties. So let’s try to interpret a territory and make it known inside a glass.
