Marsala, in the Sicilian province of Trapani, is an area that stands out for being flat and linear for the most part.
Yet, when you enter Vincenzo’s cellar, an old warehouse at the family home, everything grows by developing in height, vats mounted one on top of the other where the ability of movement of a man who is certainly not small, is astonishing.
Nature has been generous not only in stature but above all in soul. Vincenzo is a trained winemaker who has helped many wineries to emancipate themselves from the conventional line of production, towards the quest for a more sincere expression of the territory. So his wines are full macerations which bring to the wine the warmth collected in the queen varieties of Trapani: Grillo and Cataratto.
