Sicilia

A wine does not need to be perfect.It needs to be authentic!
I have devoted my life to wine, to getting to know and appreciate it, in an attempt to understand its boundless complexity. Each wine is a world to itself, which lives, grows and changes as human beings do, acquiring over time a personality that makes it unique and unlike any other wine.
My vineyards are located at the foot of Mt. Etna, between 600 and 1,200 metres above sea level, on the northern and north-western slopes. This is a mysterious and special place, a unique ecosystem with its own remarkable climatic variability and a variegated landscape teeming with life.

2020 Mareneve

Terre Siciliane Bianco IGT
Riesling, Carricante, Gewurztraminer, Chenin Blanc, Grecanico
White wine

Mareneve springs from an idea of Salvo Foti’s, as simple as it is bold: to plant a vineyard at an extreme altitude to see how different grape varieties react to the high-altitude volcanic climate. I chose to step forward and embark on this adventure, with the aim of creating a link between tradition and innovation, while contributing to the promotion of an ancient and irreplaceable craft.

2020 Etna Rosso

Etna Rosso DOC
Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio
Red wine

Blend of 3 Contrada vineyards, located on the northern slope, within tPassopisciaro and Montelaguardia, in a superb district that boasts a winemaking tradition over two thousand years old. It is from this sandy, rocky soil that my Etna Rosso is born. It is a wine that speaks the language of its land and embodies its spirit. A pure sip of authenticity.

2020 Rosso di Mezzo

Etna Rosso DOC
Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio
Red wine

This wine is made using the best grapes from the centuries old vineyards in Passopisciaro, from the four plots that belong to the winery in Contrada Feudo di Mezzo. The project looks to the future as well, since it will include, in the near future, the production of the young alberello vineyard from ungrafted vines situated in the same famous Contrada.

2020 Profumo di Vulcano

Etna Rosso DOC
nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Alicante e Francisi
Red wine

Profumo di Vulcano comes from a small vineyard from the late 19th century, 2 plots of roughly half a hectare on the northern slope of Mt. Etna, 600 metres above sea level, in the Passopisciaro district of Contrada Feudo di Mezzo, in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia. About 40% of the vines are pre-phylloxera
