Premium Sicilian wines
Sicily is able to offer some of the best wines in the world, and some of them are truly unmissable and destined for true connoisseurs. The philosophy behind many of these excellent products is to respect and treat the wine as if it were a person. In this way, Sicily is able to bring respect to the soil that the area offers, different soils and grounds, inclinations and microclimates that change depending on the proximity or distance from the sea. The Frappato grape as well as Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Malvasia, Syrah, Zibibbo are all vines able to gift masterpieces.

For example, when speaking of Frappato di Arianna Occhipinti, one can understand how love for the land and one's own region, Sicily, can translate into a wine with a thousand aspects. Authenticity and naturalness blend perfectly in this light red. Born from fifty-year-old vines grown on a medium-consistency and calcareous soil, exposed to a typically Mediterranean climate, this Frappato in purity tells the story of Sicily. Balanced and deep, it is perfect when tasted young.
Faro labeled Palari is another wine that is able to tell the history of Sicily. There are a variety of typical Sicilian vines in this red wine: Nerello Mascale and Nerello Cappuccio in larger quantities combined with native vines of the Messina territories. Faro is an elegant wine with soft tannins and a persistent finish. Ideal if aged for over fifteen years, of an intense ruby red color tending to brick color after some years. A premium wine that does not need many presentations for the more experienced.
Born in southern Sicily, where there is a special microclimate that manages to give the land a perfect mix of the hinterland and the coast thanks to the slope of the land that reaches 70%.
It is definitely worth enriching your own cellar with a bottle of this splendid and inimitable red that on the palate recalls fruity notes, vanilla and cocoa with a long and persistent finish. Critics and wine lovers cannot fail to appreciate and admire this jewel of Sicily.
