The mansion of Francesco Guccione in San Cipirello is a beautiful and happy place in the vibrant hills of Palermo.
Before winemaker, Francesco Guccione is first and foremost a farmer. Horses, a lively chicken coop, flocks of dogs and the unmissable Molly, the domesticated pig, are all his faithful life companions, all gathered in the splendid farmhouse lost in the luxuriant Sicilian countryside, looking over bright horizons that lead down onto the Piana degli Albanesi.
The utmost respect for time in the wine cellar is indispensable for the wine to take on in both its taste and in our minds the breadth that Francesco assigns to his wines, always with the paramount care to render the beauty and the elegance of a territory, you would never imagine to find near Palermo, in each glass.
“Osti per una Sera”, the program of meetings with wine producers, continues on Thursday 23 January, taking us to Tuscany, with Stefano Amerighi, winemaker in Poggiobello di Farneta, Cortona – AR
