Since 1864 love for grapevine

Excellent meditation wines. Produced from grapes deriving from single international varieties, vinificated 100% pure or blended with fine local mixed grapes.

The result is a great mixture, that, similar to the territory, always different within the same Sicily, makes an idyllic drink.

These wines are reserved to wine lovers who want to taste the excellence from a qualitative and organoleptic point of view.
