Cantine Cellaro

Sambuca di Sicilia is an area which has produced fabulous grapes for centuries and Cantine Cellaro's wines are an incomparable expression for this historical area of vines. After a strategic agreement between Cantine Cellaro and Farnese Vini, the range of the wines has been revised, both in how the wines are produced and how they are presented. Since the winery expanded the number and area of its vineyards and thanks to the company's partners, a process of mapping and classification of the territory has begun, isolating which areas are most perfectly suited to which varietals. Cantine Cellaro now represents 1000 growers and about 1700 hectares under vine. 

Despite the extensive range of varietals, a definite priority has been given to local grapes such as Nero D’Avola and Nerello Mascalese. The winemakers have conducted a high number of experiments to isolate the best approaches for maturation and vinification for each of these local varieties. The high quality of this detailed and comprehensive project Cantine Cellaro has undergone, is only made possible by by the technical experience of Filippo Baccalaro, with the collaboration in loco of the wine specialist Vito Giovinco.
