The Firriato company is one of the largest wine producers in Sicily, currently owning 6 wineries located in various parts of Sicily with very different terroir, which allows the company to produce very different wines. The philosophy has since the start of the company in the 1980’ies been to produce high quality wines, mainly based on indigenous grapes. The innovative Firriato wines have significantly supported the fame and global acceptance of Sicilian wines and made Firriato one of the most famous Sicilian wine producers.
After lengthy years of observation and experimentation, Firriato found the ideal location for the cultivation of Catarratto in the Borgo Guarini Estate. There the calcareous soils with their presence of clay and red marl are characterised by their reduced fertility and humidity. The combination of soil and climate conditions and cultivation practices gives life to the certified organic Cæles Cataratto wine. It is a vivid example of organically produced wine, characterised by herbaceous hints with a good structure giving fruity tones of unspoilt nature.
