The ancient and unchanged land of Sicily is truthfully reflected in the wines of Baglio Gibellina.
‘Baglio’ refers to the original internal courtyard of the farm, surrounded by a series of old rural warehouses once used for the collection and processing of grapes. Dominating the valley, it is surrounded by the hills of Salemi and Santa Ninfa, the landscape marked by rolling vineyards, broom and prickly pears. Old vine planted between 300-600m above sea level are grown on a mixture of clay and volcanic soils, resulting in wines that encapsulate ancient family traditions, authenticity and quality, with immense charm and easy appeal.
Nero d’Avola is a very important native varietal. Initially found in Siracusa, it is now spread in all the wine-making areas on the island. The selected old vineyards are located on the hills between 300 metres to 600 metres above the sea level. The vineyards are cultivated on clay soil with limited yields of grape per hectare using Guyot technique. This type of cultivation prefers clay-like terrain and is very sensitive to excessive dryness and too much exposure to sunlight.
The grapes are harvested by hand first week of September, and are vinified in small stainless steel tanks at acontrolled temperature of 15°C.
