Sicily, the “Land of the Sun,” has a Mediterranean climate along the coast, whereas in the inner hilly lands, the climate becomes more continental with moderately cold winters and hot summers.
VINIFICATION: Grapes are handpicked upon reaching 19/21 Babo degrees and placed in 2/3 kg drying crates. They are then stored, for about 10 days, in ventilated rooms with controlled temperature and humidity. In these rooms, kilns are lit, small slow burning and flameless combustion ovens, fueled with disused aging barrels that produce smoky clouds that permeate the premises. At the end of the ten days the grapes are smoked and have acquired a natural and refined smoky finish. After the manual destemming of the berries, the vinification process begins with the crushing, maceration and alcoholic fermentation of the grapes at a controlled temperature of 26/28 ° C for approximately 12 days. The malolactic fermentation is completed. Lastly, 30% of the wine is aged in French and American wood barrels.
