Terre di Giurfo

The company is located in an ancient and well-suited land that extends from Licodia Eubea to the Iblean province, along the valley of the Dirillo River.

Today it is managed by Achille, who, together with his family, works with the aim of achieving the highest quality both in the cellar and among the rows.

Terre di Giurfo

A strength lies in the heterogeneous terrain on which the company's vineyards are located, with altitudes ranging from 500 meters above sea level for the wines of the Iblean province to 600 meters above sea level for those obtained on Mount Etna. Traditional varieties such as Nero d'Avola, Frappato, and Nerello Mascalese have been cultivated using organic farming practices for several years. The wines are sincere and direct, just like the owner.

Sicily

Sicilian wine territory is now considered a true continent, thanks to its pedoclimatic variability and rich biodiversity. It is located in the center of the Mediterranean and in the so-called "northern sunbelt," an area between the 30th and 50th parallels north and the 30th and 40th parallels south, where the best conditions of brightness and temperature for vine cultivation are found.

On the smaller islands, given the high temperatures and windy conditions, the typical training system is the "alberello" and its "mixed" versions (for example, on the island of Pantelleria), as well as the "Tendone" system. In the rest of Sicilian territory, however, more than half of the vineyards use espaliers and contre-espaliers. In Sicily, wines with a long history are born, such as Marsala, but also fragrant dessert wines like Passito di Pantelleria and Malvasia delle Lipari, not to mention Moscato di Noto and numerous robust red wines and interesting white wines. There's also Nerello Mascalese, climbing the slopes of Mount Etna.

Catania

The area of Catania, located in the eastern region of Sicily, is famous for its rich winemaking tradition, characterized by unique landscapes and climatic conditions favorable to grape cultivation. Among the most important designations in the area, the Etna DOC stands out, as well as the Terre Siciliane IGT.

Both indigenous and international grape varieties are cultivated: Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, mainly used for wines of the Etna DOC, which are known for their complexity and elegance. Other significant grape varieties include Carricante and Catarratto, white grape varieties.

The grapes grow on diverse soils, mostly of volcanic origin. The volcanic slopes are characterized by mineral-rich soils, giving the wines mineral notes and complexity. Clayey and limestone soils present in some areas contribute to giving structure and character to the wines.

Among the slopes of the majestic volcano, the Catania area gives life to renowned wines, with the Etna DOC standing out prominently.
