ABOUT: The Cossentino's agricultural company is located on the hills of
Gulf of Castellammare in Lavatore/Costa di Bisaccia Street (m. 350 on sea level), and it is one of the most evocative production zones of D.O.C. Alcamo wine.

There, traditional autochthonous grapevines like Catarratto, Inzolfa, Grillo and Nero d'Avola , placed side by side to allochthonous grapevines like Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, and in these lands they found the perfect climate condition for the production of great wines.

The high density of the implantation (5000 stumps/ ha) and the pruning method designed to obtain low output represent a sure quality of the grapes, which when they are completely mellow they're collected and placed in designed crates.

The production process in the same company, a few minutes after the harvesting and the rapid cooling process of the pressing guarantee the perfect fragrance of the grapes in the whole production process.

Only for the red wines is used a specific wood, barriques and 500 litres tonneaux , to guarantee a perfect maturation of the grapes.

The olive trees are located on the whole land and they contribute to integrate the production with fine oils which are proposed in two different varieties: Biancolilla and Cerasuola.

The biological agriculture method practiced in accordance with the reg. CEE 2092/91 is our duty to respect man, nature and the consumer itself.
