Description

This wine is produced at Cantine Settesoli. Situated in southwestern Sicily, near the town of Menfi, the co-operative has 2,000 members who between them farm over 5,000 hectares of vineyard. These members are mixed farmers, with many of them also raising livestock or growing other crops like artichokes (the famous carciofi spinosi di Menfi, which are protected by the Slow Food organisation). The work Cantine Settesoli has done to raise the quality of viticulture has ensured a better income for the cooperative members, which in turn means they invest more in the quality of their fruit.
