This is a privileged area for Sicilian viticulture and the birth region for the Nero d’Avola nines. The soil is a calcareous slightly salty, the climate is relatively mild due to the nearby sea and the strong sirocco wind gives the wine strength and intense colour.
The Bonivini was born out of passion for viticulture, carried on with enthusiasm and determination by the Losi family. The winery has the ambition to produce high-quality wines with foces on important details from the vineyard to the wine marketing. This involves the initial control of the quantity produced, specially kept within pre-established limits, the non-intensive cultivation system, the hand harvesting of the grapes, the respect of certain quality standards in every phase of the processing.
