The Bonetta family at the old Baglio del Cristo farm has only been growing vines for the last 20 years and has managed to present itself as an important and innovative winery in Sicily enhancing both the native and international grapes that they adapt well to the limestone chalky soils, the hot summer temperatures mitigated by the cooler sea breezes. The family currently manage 30 hectors of vineyards and their philosophy is about individual vinification of each vineyard in respect for a unique and precious territory with strong focus on quality in all phases of the wine production.
The Syrah vines for the Lusirà red wine have an age of 18 years and grow in vineyards with mainly calcareous soil in a hilly terrain at an altitude of 230-270 m. in Campobello di Licata at a short distance from the Mediterranean Sea on the south coast of Sicily. The grapes were manually harvested in small crates. After a further selection the grape bunches were de-stemmed and lightly crushed. The grape mix was transferred to stainless steel tanks for maceration and fermentation for about 18 days under temperature-control, with regular pumping over of the must in order to have optimum extraction of the substances in the skins. The wine matured for fourteen months in French oak barriques and a minimum of twelve months in bottle.
Longevity 10-15 years.
