Perricone / Sicilia D.O.C. / organic agriculture / CSQA certification
In mythology the story goes that the Achaean warrior, son of king Theseus, Acamas during the siege of Troy was able to save his lover and child from the burning city. This demonstrated that irrespective of the war space for love is made for love and its creations. We have named our Perricone wine after Alcamas to acknowledge that this particular variety of vine is one of the oldest grown locally, but moreover that it is a courageous wine with a strong personality.

Yield (in quintals of grapes per Ha)
Perricone is one of the latest to mature. It is well adapted to our local environment where it reaches optimum level of ripening. The grapes are handpicked and transported to the winery in small baskets. Afterwards they are destemmed and the grapes pomace (prepared in the proceeding days with grapes from the same vine) is added activating the natural fermentation process. The fermentation proceeds for approximately 12 days at 27*C. The grape pomace is then separated and pressed. After spontaneous malolactic fermentation, the wine then refines in large stainless steel vessels then in oak barrels for one year.
