SKU: 11333

From a 60 hectare winery in the southeast of Sicily, run by young winemaker sisters Marilina and Federica Paternò. Grown organically, the Grecanico grape is thought to be the sister of the Garganega grape from Soave. This a very different wine, not only because of the calcareous soil but the use of spontaneous fermentation in concrete. With 6 months in tank to fine and 3 months in bottle before release.

Winemaker

Marilina and Federica Paternò

Angelo Paterno handed the reins over to his daughters, Marilina and Federica, who have been farming organically since the vineyard was established in 2001. You will find existing saplings that are between 40 and 50 years old united in a classic system of vines grown together with fruit trees. Their philosophy is simple: absolute respect for the earth. The climate in Sicily works to their advantage in making wine with as little intervention as possible. Their modern approach is combined with traditional winemaking techniques such as concrete tanks, drying grapes out in the sun and extended skin maceration for the white wines.
