THE COMPANY

A very young winery, which has already managed to establish itself as one of the best in the Sicilian wine scene. Le Casematte, born in 2008 at the hands of Gianfranco Sabbatino, joined today by the player Andrea Barzagli, is a winery that is based, above all, on passion and determination. Climbing on a beautiful hill overlooking the Strait of Messina, the eight hectares of vineyards owned, to which are added at the moment two more for rent, are strictly conducted in the biological regime. Among the rows, the territorial identity is strong, so the varieties of vines present are the autochthonous ones, since ancient times in this area used to produce wine. In the cellar, the "hand-guide" is that of the famous oenologist Carlo Ferrini, who expertly manages to enhance the nerello mascalese and nerello cappuccio clusters, those of nocera and nero d'Avola, and those of carricante and cricket. Grapes in which the artificial intervention is reduced to a minimum, as also the use of small wood is limited. This is how labels are born, which are given over-emphasized the name of "Le Casematte": wines of scrupulous artisan care, remarkable in all respects, elegantly natural, and which, above all in no uncertain terms, are contributing to give a new luster to a DOC - that of Faro - which in the past years has even risked disappearing from the list of denominations.
