WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
The autochthonous Grillo grapes are grown at an altitude of 500 meters above sea level. The harvest is manual, in boxes, with careful selection of the bunches in the vineyard. Fermentation at controlled temperature (15-18° C) of the juice; aging in steel for a period of 3 to 6 months and a further 60 days in the bottle. .
Sicily is the southernmost region of Italy, as well as the largest island in the Mediterranean. Around there are various islands of volcanic origin, while the eastern part is characterized by the presence of Etna. It is a predominantly hilly region (61.4% of the territory), while 24.5% is mountainous and the remaining 14.1% is flat (the largest plain is that of Catania). It was the Greeks in the eighth century. B.C. to spread the cultivation of the vine here: with the introduction of the Aegean sapling, the Sicilians became expert connoisseurs of the vine cultivation techniques. Sicilian wines were also highly appreciated in ancient Rome.
The climate is predominantly Mediterranean, with hot summers and mild winters. In the coastal area however, it is subtropical. The climate, in the presence of the high hills, from 500 meters above sea level, of the interior is milder and with significant decreases in average temperatures.
From a geological point of view, the Sicilian region belongs to the African plate. The only exception is for the north-eastern part, that of Messina, which belongs to the Eurasian one, made up of the Apennine-Maghreibide chain. The sliding of the African plate under the Eurasian one has determined the creation of the mountainous reliefs of the island, and the presence of frequent seismic activities, the causes of which are both tectonic and volcanic.
In particular, with the Feudo Disisa we are in the Monreale DOC, from the area immediately south-west of the capital of Sicily, Palermo: a denomination created in 2000 which includes red, rosé and white wines. The DOC takes its name from the city located on a hill facing east overlooking the fertile crescent of the Conca d'Oro, also renowned for its citrus fruits, almonds and olives.
The grapes of the region are nero d'avola, syrah, sangiovese, perricone, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and pinot noir; among the whites there are inzolia, catarratto, grillo, chardonnay and pinot bianco.
The denomination Sicilia DOC was instead established in 2011, starting from the previous Sicilia IGT, to promote and preserve the native grape varieties of the island, and enhance the history and quality of the island's wine. The DOC Sicilia is focused on white and red Sicilian wines that have a deep bond with their territory of origin. The denomination includes the entire territory of the region and when the grape is indicated on the label it implies that at least 85% of the mass comes from the vinification of the variety indicated.
Feudo Disisa has belonged to the Di Lorenzo family for over a century and today it is a point of reference in the area for the quality of its wines. Handed down from father to son, the love and respect for the territory remain vivid and intact even today, thanks to the commitment and passion of our family now in its fifth generation. A history spanning over eight centuries that features the peoples of the Mediterranean, those of northern Europe, the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Arabs and the Normans in a succession of encounters, clashes, cultures and traditions.
The cellar is close to the vineyards to minimize the stress of the freshly harvested grapes during transport for delivery to the presses.
From the point of view of the grapes, Feudo Disisa has always claimed as strategic the choice to combine native vines with international grapes, in the awareness that the distinctive processes of the terroir intervene significantly in the definition of the varietal expression of each planted vine. A winemaking kaleidoscope of absolute interest, a reference point of the Monreale DOC.
