Autenthic Sicily


Working the land with passion, trying to enclose it in the wine.


Catarratto is our Father, it is our Prince, it is the undisputed ambassador of our Land.
In the history of Alcamo and Wester Sicily it tells the story of the peasant life and the economy of entire generations.
For us it is the redemption of many winemakers, the vine we love most.
The first vine our family planted.
Its different expressions of longevity, freshness, aromaticity, always gives us new insights for the experimentation in winemaking and in choosing vineyard micro-portion that enhance its quality.


Cinque Inverni


Grillo is a vigorous, heat- and drought-resistant variety, and this is why, despite the fact that our Grillo vineyard is not irrigated, it holds up well in Salaparuta’s torrid summers.
Recent studies have shown that this variety is the result of the cross between Catarratto and Zibibbo.


Acini di Grillo


Cultivated in Sicily presumably since Phoenician times, this grape variety was used primarily as a fresh or dried table grape, hence the Arabic origin name “Zibibbo”, used in Sicily to refer to the dried storage grapes.
We love it DRY, with its enveloping aromaticity and freshness reminiscent of the Sicilian Sea.


Nero D'Avola

Nero D’Avola vine has a large cluster, with medium sized berries of a very dark blue colour, and a fairly thin and pruinose skin.
Because of its susceptibility to mold, it prefers dry and well ventilated exposure. It best express its qualities on poor and lime rich soils, that naturally limit the plant production and give wines with good concentration of aromas and greater finesse and elegance.


Syrah, or Shiraz, is a black grape variety widespread all over the world, although it is historically link to the European-Mediterranean and Near Eastern areas.
Its orgin are controversial, although everyone are fairly agreed that it came from the ancient Persian areas, near the city of Shiraz. One legend tells that it comes instead from Syracuse (Sicily).
We confirm that it has adapted well in Salaparuta.
