Perricone DOC Sicilia 2021

This wine borns from vines rooted on loose clay soils in the heart of the Alto Belice Corleonese. In this bottle there is everything that Perricone, one of the oldest Sicilian native vines, has taught us about the care of the vine and the enhancement of its fruits.

Dedicated to all the schools and the teachers committed to fighting mafia anti-culture, promoting legality and civic engagement values.
