Vigna Firraru 2021
As mild a winter as ever and an early spring kicked off the 2021 viticultural season in Sicily. Harmonious and balanced vegetation development, the result of our attention to detail. Immediately after flowering, temperatures rose rapidly as early as June, regulated by constant winds cooling the vineyards and significant temperature ranges. The harvest began in late August without any particular advances in ripening. The grapes, the highest expression of quality, represent very well the varietal and terroir characteristics.
