The Milazzo family way of “winemaking” is the tireless work in the vineyard. The natural meticulous improvement in the vine types is the fruit of a route that started out over fifty years ago and is still travelling on today: the search for the perfect combination between selecting the clones, the choice of the subsoils and the microclimate’s characteristics in each part of the vineyards. Milazzo's organic certification shows the commitment as winemakers to produce quality wines that also attests the responsibility for the environment.
The catarratto grapes for the Vignavella white wine grow in Milazzo’s Vella and Munti vineyards at 400 metres altitude in the South of Sicily on the hills to the north-east of Campobello di Licata. A grape growing area with a colorful mosaic of soils and the influence of a typical Mediterranean climate that make wines with their own identity and an original character
The grapes were manually harvested and carefully sorted followed by a soft pressing of the grapes. The must was fermented in stainless steel vats and remained in the tanks for 6-12 months before bottling. The wine matured for another 3 months in the bottles before release.
Longevity 5-7 years.
