Deep red wine, produced with a carefully chosen blend of indigenous and international grape variety.

Delicate hints of fruit and plum, accompanied by sweet notes of dried and candied fruit.

Blackberry, pomegranate and candied fruit are combined with a pleasant spicy finish leading to a medium-bodied, dry palate with silky tannins.

“Finimondo!” (or the End of the World!)

 

From a selection of native and international grapes grown in western Sicily, on silty and clayey soil, rich in minerals, known as Terra Grande.

The vineyards are 250 to 600 metres above sea level, exposed to maximum temperatures, although mitigated by frequent wind.

Natural dehydration of the grape obtained through the technique of cutting the shoot, with the consequent enhancement of the aromatic fragrances of the mature peel.

Ageing in wood for 4 months.

Cantine Pellegrino 1880

The Pellegrino family has always personally overseen the activities in the vineyard and in the winery, and the family is still today, having reached the seventh generation, involved daily in the management of the company. A long family history made up of respect, care, love and dedication, of values handed down from father to son, which today make it one of the greatest families of Sicilian wine.

The Pellegrino vineyards are located in the westernmost part of Sicily, which is characterized by a great variety of microclimates. The territory boasts the highest vine-covered area in Italy as it is considered the most suitable area of the island for grape growing. Here in fact the intense light, the dry climate, the fresh soils, the winds coming from the south and the strong atmospheric temperature range, create the ideal conditions for the production of quality wines.

It was the Phoenicians who, between the eighth and seventh century BC, introduced vine cultivation in these territories. We are therefore in the cradle of the native Sicilian vines: grillo, inzolia, catarratto, grecanico, zibibbo, malvasia, nero d’avola, nerello mascalese and frappato, these vines have always been used here for the production of great wines.
