Francesco Guccione’s production philosophy is to look after and enhance the four elements contributing in making a wine unique. Soil - Heat - Water - Light with conscious involvement adding the fifth, the work of the winemaker. It is of great importance that the ﬁnal product reﬂects the terroir in a genuine and sincere way.
The Perricone vines for the P red wine have an age of 10 years and grow in the argillaceous marl vineyards in Contrada Cerasa situated near Monreale to the south-west of Palermo in Western Sicily at an altitude of 480 m.
The grapes were manually harvested, sorted, and destemmed followed by fermentation using indigenous yeasts in large wooden casks. The wine was aged for 12 months in the wooden casks.
The winemaking is to intervene the least amount possible, simply accompanying the natural transformation of the sugars to alcohol using only the indigenous yeasts present on the skin of the grapes, of the must to wine, preserving the natural bouquet of scents and flavours obtaining a wine as faithful to the vintage, terroir and the work in the vineyard. Not filtered. Biodynamic cultivation, without chemical additives, be it in the vineyard, be it in the vinification.
