Strong and intense wine produced with grapes of Nerello Mascalese.

Its strong and persistent taste describes the harshness of the sun-burned production area.

Our vineyards are located In the area of Castiglione di Sicilia, where the cultivation of the vine has ancient origins. This area boasts a strong vocation for the production of high-quality wines. At the side of the volcano, Mount Etna, on a mineral-rich soil, the vines slowly grow kissed by the hot sicilian sun; these conditions enhance the growth of superb grapes where we obtain our finest wines.

Beyond every bottle there is a long story that tells about the vineyards and harvests, fatigue and hands dirtied with soil yet determination, which creates a story started from our ancestors and handed down from generation to generation, from father to son.
