Due Neri 2022

About the Winery: Cantine Nicosia

The Nicosia family have been producing wine for five generations since 1898, when Francesco Nicosia, the great-grandfather of the current owner, decided to open his first wine shop in Trecastagni, on the eastern slope of Mount Etna. This was the golden age of Etna wines, which – even then – were renowned and esteemed across Europe for their great quality and “volcanic” personality.

Today, Cantine Nicosia is a multi-award winning wine company, producing some of the best wines that Sicily has to offer, focusing on the finest native and international grape varieties applying the principles of sustainable viticulture.

The vineyards of Trecastagni with their distinctive lava terraces completely restructured and replanted with the native varieties used for Etna DOC wines, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio for the red, and Catarratto and Carricante for the white. The quality of the soil was formed through the disintegration of lavas and eruptive material ejected from Mt. Etna, Europe’s most active Volcano.

Just a few miles from the southernmost tip of the Italian peninsula, is the lively agricultural centre of Vittoria, home to Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico. Here nature still conveys all the colours, smells and sensations of a beautifully preserved landscape, where located is the vineyards that grow Nero d’Avola, Frappato and Syrah.
