ABOUT: Calogero is one of the new vignerons that you should get to know in order to really understand the fire that burns inside the new generation of natural winemakers. Having grown professionally with Maestro Stefano Amerighi, Calogero has now returned to his homeland of Sicily in order to dedicate his body and soul to his new winery. The white grape Inzolia is the centerpiece of this project that is focused on local tradition, where there are deep roots of ancient winemaking methods such as full cask, flor, prolonged maceration and so on. When you taste this wine you seem to go back decades and taste the wine of the past, but this time, done with deep awareness it can be enjoyed today.

VINEYARD: The Calogero Caruana farm is located above the Torre Salsa Reserve in Monteallegro, in the province of Agrigento (Sicily), less than 2 km from the sea. The soils are neraly all sandy with a touch of clay and limestone and the total property is composed of 2 hectares of vineyards, 2 of arable land and 1 of olive groves. The grape varietals grown are all native: Inzolia, Grillo, Catarratto and Nero d’Avola all immersed in lush and spectacular Mediterranean scrub. Calogero's commitment lies in producing an artisanal wine that reflects the characteristics of the soil, the natural environment and each vintage is represented based on its unique characteristics. Fermentation is spontaneous from native yeast and the interventions in the cellar are minimal and essential, so that the fermentation and refinements take place in the best possible way.

WINEMAKING: Vinification is made in more steps, with two separate harvests. The first mass is vinified from the youngest vineyard and aged in a slightly drained cask with a presence of flor. The second vinification from the 50-year-old vines, with maceration on the skins with whole stems. Then separate aging for one year, assembly of both masses and one year of bottle aging.
