Red table wine, obtained from grapes grown with the "biodynamic method of agriculture" in accordance with Demeter production standards;
Hilly hinterland of the Province of Trapani. The territory in question has an altitude ranging from 350 and 450 m a.s.l., a hilly position, which, together with the favorable exposure of the vineyards, contributes to creating an environment that is adequately ventilated, bright and with a soil naturally draining from waste water, particularly suited to the cultivation of the vine. The silico-calcareous nature, the texture and the chemical-physical structure of the soils interact in a decisive way with the cultivation of the vine, contributing to obtaining the particular physical, chemical and organoleptic characteristics of the wine in question. Even the climate of the typically Mediterranean production area with rainfall concentrated in the autumn-winter period and drought for the remaining months of the year, are all characteristics that lend themselves to quality viticulture.
