The Feudo Principi di Butera winery lies in the heart of Sicily, in the province of Caltanissetta, which is recognised as one of the best wine making regions in Sicily thanks above all to its production of high quality wines.
The vines for the Cabernet Sauvignon red wine grow in vineyards situated on hills with an average altitude of 250-350 m; at a distance of only 10km from the sea. The soil is limestone and shell rich meaning the earth is white, an element which gives the grapevines the appropriate growth balance.
The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted and destalked followed by fermentation on the skins for 14 days in stainless steel tanks. The wine was matured for 12 months in French oakbarrels and barriques. After bottling the wine was refined for a further period in the bottles.
Longevity 5-10 years.
