In ancient times, the red wines of this territory were known as Pachino wines, and not as Nero d’Avola, because each district (“contrada” in italian language) gives different wines from the same vines, thanks to the nature of the soils and to the different microclimates. The hill where the vineyards are located is called “cozzo del parroco”, all the vineyards are located close together. Their characteristic consists of having four different types of soils all of clayey limestone. Each parcel is characterized by different soil compositions, exposure and breeding system, giving each wine unique characteristics that are well distinguishable, they are expressions of “contrada Buonivini”.
This wine is produced from Nero d’Avola grapes obtained from the following vineyards: coniglio, lenza lunga, conca and parrino. Each vineyard has very heterogeneous soil chromaticity, different exposures and slopes. The Rosso di Contrada is the expression of our work and of a hill immersed in the nature of the place in the Buonivini district. To better understand the potential of each vineyard we have always vinified and matured separately every single parcel and, we have never crushed the grapes but only de-stemmed them to have greater respect for the raw material. It matures in steel for one year and bottling on the fruit days of the lunar calendar. It refines in bottles for at least a year.
It is a classic Nero d’Avola, typical expression of our district, with sweet tannins and abundant freshness.
