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 Grillo and Inzolia vines for the Adènzia Bianco white wine have an age of 18 years and grow in deep chalky limestone soil in a hilly terrain at an altitude of between 230 and 270 ms in Campobello di Licata at a short distance from the Mediterranean Sea on the south coast of Sicily. Each type of the grapes was manually harvested and processed separately. After de-stemming and crushing, the temperature of the grapes was lowered to 8-10 ºC for the maceration and fermentation. Following a light pressing the grape juice was separated and decanted at low temperature. After the fermentation the wine aged for 3 months on the lees in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks before being blended to the final wine and bottled. The wine rested at least two months in bottles.
