The grapes for this wine grow on the hills near Lake Arancio in Sicily. It is located in the southeast of the island near Sambuca di Sicilia, a relatively young winery owned by Cantine Cellaro. The vines of this wine grow in the soil on fertile soil, and the soil retains water well so the vines can withstand the hot summer well. This wine is made from typical indigenous grape varieties of the island, with Nerello Mascalese producing 70% and Nero d’Avola 30%.
The grapes are carefully selected and then soaked for 18 days. The wine is then aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months to age the three varieties separately. Assembly and filling are only carried out after this time. The wine is then aged in bottle for at least 6 months before it is sold.
