Expanding over just one hectare of land and exposed to the saltiness of the Mediterranean: the contrast and harmony between the intensity of Nero d'Avola and the softness of Frappato, a persuasive grape variety with fruity aromas, is at play here. Cerasuolo di Vittoria is the one and only DOCG of the island.
Nero d’Avola 70% Frappato di Vittoria 30%, selected and replanted by Azienda Gulfi according to Alberello training system.
Nero d’Avola is named after Avola, a small town near Pachino in the province of Siracusa (near Ragusa) where it has been selected by local growers several hundred years ago. Frappato di Vittoria is an old indigenous wine grape variety from the southeast part of Sicily. Probably it originates in the territory of Vittoria (Ragusa) where it has been grown since the XVIIth century
