👁 Deep ruby ​​red;

👃🏻 the nose is intense and persistent, with a fruity bouquet (blueberry, cherry above all) enriched with notes of violet, cocoa and a light spice;

👄 in the mouth it is enveloping and warm, with a freshness that calibrates the softness, with smooth, full-bodied and persistent tannins. Very pleasant.



Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC is a full-bodied and intense wine, which lends itself well to being tasted in combination with full-bodied dishes, which equalize the intensity of the wine. So to try with roasted or grilled meat, stewed red meat main courses and game.



The grapes come from the Nero d'Avola vines, which here finds its maximum expression. The harvest is manual, with selection of the best bunches, followed by pressing and maceration on the skins for 15 days. Fermentation is in steel tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation. The aging is done both in barrique and in steel barrels for about 6 months, followed by further refinement 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 (for 61.4% of the territory), while for 24.5% it is mountainous and for the remaining 14.1% it is flat (the largest plain is that of Catania). It were 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 vine cultivation techniques. Sicilian wines were also highly appreciated in ancient Rome.

The climate is mainly Mediterranean, with hot summers and mild winters. In the coastal area, on the other hand, 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, constituted by 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 that includes red, rosé and white wines. The DOC takes its name from the city located on an east-facing hill overlooking the fertile crescent of the Conca d’Oro, also renowned for 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 Sicilia DOC denomination was instead established in 2011, starting with the previous Sicily IGT, to promote and preserve the island's native grape varieties, 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 connection 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 shown. 


For over a century Feudo Disisa has belonged to the Di Lorenzo family and today it is a point of reference in the area for the quality of its wines. Passed down from father to son, 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 sees the peoples of the Mediterranean, those of northern Europe, the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Arabs and the Normans as protagonists in a succession of encounters, clashes, cultures and traditions.

The winery 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 grapes, Feudo Disisa has always claimed the strategic choice of combining native vines with international grapes, in the awareness that the distinctive processes of the terroir play a significant role in the definition of the varietal expression of each vine planted. A viticultural kaleidoscope of absolute interest, reference point of the Monreale DOC.
