The Cantine Fina follows a tradition of winemaking that started thousands of years ago when the Greek and Phoenician settlements on the Sicilian west coast started the cultivation of grapes.
The vines for the Syrah red wine grow in the Cantine Fina vineyards in the highlands outside Marsala near the sea on the west coast of Sicily at an altitude of 350 m. The vineyards therefore benefits from two climate related moderators - its altitude, where it can take advantage of the sea breezes and the significant temperature compensator, which is the sea itself.
The harvesting is done manually followed by careful sorting and destemming of the grapes. Fermentation is done on the skins in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Maturation takes place partly in steel tanks and partly in French oak barriques for 12 months.
Longevity 3-5 years.
