Here there is a unique and distinctive habitat, the fruit of an unceasing process of osmosis between the two lands: African and Sicilian elements meet to create a virtuous blend. The land is wild, pristine, and of a rare and surprising beauty. This land is called Menfi. This is Sicily's "African coast". It stands out for its clear waters and breathtaking natural sceneries that exalt a land with intact ecologica features and mark a break, with the beauty of the landscapes, from therural element of the cultivated fields.
African features such as the temperatures and light are ideal for growing grape vines: the climate is dry, the light is strong and intense, at times even blinding. The changes in temperature and the bright light, the gradient of the land, the influence of the sea, and the hot southerly winds are all elements that make this area especially appropriate for wine-growing.
These elements, alongside the modern vine cultivation techniques, foster the growth of the grapes and make it possible to achieve excellent quality. These lands yield especially fresh, sapid and fruity wines. Among these is Fiano, a summery cultivar of southern Italy, which here expresses a marvelous aroma.
The vineyards are located at 150/300 meters above sea level, on clayey and medium-textured soils. The grapes are harvested manually in mid-August and vinified in steel. The result is a wine with a light yellow color, with greenish reflections, fragrant on the nose and with a good balance between acidity and freshness, with hints of citrus, white peach and ripe apricot. It goes well with all the blue fish dishes, rice salads and white meats. The recommended serving temperature is 10/12 ° C.
Another white wine born of careful experimentation in the vineyard is Viognier, a modern and elegant wine, with its final hint of bitter almonds. An international cultivar recently imported, the first harvest dates to 2004. It has perfectly adapted to this area where vineyards span over a level stretch of land with south/southwest aspect on limy and medium-textured soils. The ripening of the grapes is so early that the harvest is done by hand during the first week of August.
