One of the oldest grapevines in Sicily, the Nerello Mascalese originates in the Mount Etna area, and for a very long time it has been cultivated in the west of Sicily. Today it is the second most cultivated vine of the red grape, next to the Nero d’Avola.

The grapes are hand-picked and transported to the winery inside small baskets. At the winery, they are de-stemmed, and the must is added (prepared in the proceeding days with grapes from the same vine) to initiate the natural fermentation. The fermentation continues for approximately 9 days at 25*C, at the end, the grape pomace is separated from the wine and pressed. After the malolactic fermentation, which takes place spontaneously, the wine refines for the following winter and spring in stainless steel vessels before being bottled.
