Frappato was born from a girl's dream of making a wine that tastes of the land she works, the air she breathes, and her own thoughts. It is sour, sanguine and elegant. It is a courageous, original and rebellious wine. But not only.
Grotte Alte is a Cerasuolo di Vittoria, made from Frappato and Nero d'Avola grapes, which takes its name from the limestone ridges on which Vittoria stands. It is a Mediterranean wine that preserves the flavor of the sea and all the air and temperature ranges of the Iblei mountains.
Siccagno is my Nero d’Avola, born from those concentrated grapes which we precisely call Siccagna. Nero relates mostly Sicily, that it is wild, but it is also fresh and elegant and it is red fruit flavoured. That it has something noble and aristocratic, but it is also melancholic as a poet or a philosopher. That it is passionate, full of warmth and contrasts.
SP68, the name of a road, for a wine that is a journey. That of the peasants who already three thousand years ago left the countryside with the amphorae, and then the barrels, and inside the fruit of their labor, the effort, the joy, again the smell of the earth.
SP68 is a road but it is also a young wine. Cool and pleasant, with a delicate taste that it brings the flavour of the sun and the freshness of this land.

Pettineo: is a historic district beyond the Serra San Bartolo promontory; historically it has always produced very elegant wines thanks to a layer of loose and deep marine sand (50-60 cm) with little presence of calcareous pebbles on the surface.
