The Tenuta Rapitalà covers 225 hectares in the district that slopes down from Camporeale towards Alcamo in north-western Sicily on rolling hills at 300–600 metres in altitude, on alternating clay and sandy soils. An optimal soil composition makes this ideal wine country for growing the finest vines. Rapitalà is a real name and comes from the Arabic “Rabidh-Allah” – the “river of Allah”, from the stream that flows among the vineyards, and proof that this countryside has been cultivated since ancient times. Over the centuries, generations of farmers mapped out the current form and identity of the estate. The current winery uses the most innovative pressing, refrigeration, winemaking, and bottling techniques.
The Syrah grapes for the Solinero red wine come from Tenuta Rapitalà vineyards situated at an altitude of 300 and 400 metres with rich and heavy, clay soil, trained by the Guyot system with limited yields per hectare. The grapes were harvested by hand when fully ripe when their aroma richness was at their maximum.
