The importance of the soils where the vines are grown determines the style and taste of a wine. Only in soils with good expressions grown in suitable areas can the facets of a territory be identified, dictated by the rhythm of the vintage and by the interpretation of the producer. This wine wants to tell the typicality of the clayey soils of Contrada Bonivini.

Wine obtained from the selection of the best parcels of Nero d’Avola grapes, cultivated on clayey yellow soils. The clayey lands, of pure clay, give the wines a dense and powerful texture, concentrating great richness to the taste.

To depict this wine we decided to stylize the clayey soil with the colour of the earth of our vineyards. In the four natural elements, the earth symbolizes our origins, welcomes life and nourishes it.
