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.

Etna

Mount Etna is a wine region that offers unique wines in the world.
Thousands of years of powerful eruptions, complex transformations, and ongoing volcanic events have made the soil that hosts the vineyards the key element from which springs that exclusive and unparalleled complexity, essential for a wine, the Etna wine, increasingly famous worldwide.

In the Etna area, there are substantial microclimatic differences between one zone and another of the volcano, due to the particular position of Mount Etna and its morphology. The territory, the microclimate, the volcanic soil rich in minerals, together with the peculiarity of the native grape varieties, favor the production of unique wines.

Etna wine was the first Sicilian table wine to obtain recognition as a Controlled Designation of Origin (DOC).

Mount Etna, with its millennia-old history of eruptions and volcanic transformations, confers upon its wines a unique complexity in the world.
