A land of extraordinary characteristics, Sicily has emerged only in recent years as a region of great wines, with a climate and soils that are a guarantee of high quality. The region, which the Greeks and Romans called Enotria by virtue of its celebrated suitability for vine cultivation, is home to Feudi del Pisciotto - 40 hectares of vineyards lying around 7 km from the sea and 250 meters above sea level. The soil mixture is rich in skeleton and the vineyards benefit from two climatic moderators - altitude and the sea - that give the wines a recognizable stamp of sapidity and freshness.
In the area of Niscemi lies the Case Vecchie vineyard: facing the East and extremely rich in skeleton, it gives its wines elegance and a notable structure. The day-night temperature range contributes to a better build-up of aromatic molecules and the maintenance of good organic acid levels, guaranteeing the wine an appropriate acidity in-line with the best Burgundy Pinot.
