How it's made

Grapes were sourced from vineyards in the coastal area of the western tip of Sicily – in Petrosino, Trapani and Marzara del Vallo areas. Vines are cultivated in chalky soils with sandy patches, and are an average age between 20 to 25 years old. Harvesting takes place in late August / early September. After temperature-controlled fermentation for 30 days, the wine is the filtered and bottled.
