Duca di Salaparuta

The winery near Palermo on the Italian island Sicily was founded in 1824 by Edoardo Alliata di Villafranca. After having been in the region for a long time, it now belongs to the huge Illva Saronno group of companies. No DOC wines are produced. Around 830,000 boxes of wine are produced annually. The grapes are largely supplied from Central and Western Sicily. The two dry-grown IGT wines "Corvo Rosso" (mainly Nero d'Avola) and "Corvo Bianco" (mainly Catarratto), which are among the best-known Sicilian branded wines, have the largest share of production. Other wines are the white "Colomba Platino" (from Inzolia and Grecanico), the red wine "Duca Enrico" (pure variety from Nero d'Avola), and the barrique Bianco di Valguarnera (Inzolia).
