Tenuta Valle delle Ferle
Tenuta Valle delle Ferle is located a few kilometers from Caltagirone, within the “Cerasuolo di Vittoria (DOCG)” Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin area, in the heart of the oldest wine route ever identified, the one which, according to studies by the historian and archaeologist Hubert Allen, extends from Gela-Kamarina, through the hills of Niscemi and Vittoria, up to Caltagirone and then continues towards Lentini and finally reaches Catania.
In 2016, Claudia Sciacca and Andrea Annino embarked on their exciting project, they consistently invested resources and passion to create wines that manage to combine the natural winemaking tradition of the places, respect for the land and its balance, originality of native vines grown organically, elegance and harmony.
Our production consists of the Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG which is born in the ancient “mixed” vineyard, the Frappato , the Nero d’Avola , the Rosato and the Bianco , enriched by the particular relationship of soil and climate, and by the richness of the reinforced ecosystem from the organic regime. The grapes are selected in the vineyard and harvested by hand, in the cellar the best bunches become wine with indigenous yeasts and very low use of sulfur dioxide . The history of the vineyards, protected and developed on land ideal for their development, imposes on the taste the marked character of the production area , the aromatic notes of historical vines of a unique territory , in which altitude, wind and climatic contrasts enhance the complex structure , the richness and elegance of wine.
