The wines are not subject to any filtration, clarification, stabilization or addition of sulfites. In the vineyard the naturalistic approach based on organic farming techniques combined with biodynamic concepts tend to enhance a management aimed at producing wines that contain a strong territorial identity.
The Perricone vines for this Perricò red wine grow in Aldo Viola’s calcareous clay vineyards outside Monreale. The grapes were manually harvested, sorted, and delicately de-stemmed and left to ferment and macerate using natural yeasts on the skins. The wine was matured for 9 months in large oak barrels. The wine was bottled without pressing and filtration.
