Palermo

The "Azienda Agricola Palermo" is located near Salaparuta in the province of Trapani in the south Sicily, It was founded in 1976 by Antonio Palermo. At that time, only a relatively small area was planted with vines. In 2002, his son Giovanni took over the business. This set itself the goal of producing high-quality wines with terroir-related. At first it was experimented with different grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. After a few attempts, the choice finally fell to the indigenous Sicilian variety Nero d'Avola, which in connection with "Controspalliere" (pile education) Guyot is grown. On one hectare come about 3,600 vines, which are cultivated on a corresponding yield of about 1.2 to 1.5 kg per plant. The vineyards today comprise about six hectares of vineyards in the since 2006 classified as newly DOC area Salaparuta,

The varietal DOC red wine "Bruchicello" from the variety Nero d'Avola was first marketed in 2001 (born in 1999). Harvesting is done by hand only in small baskets, followed by mashing for almost two weeks in stainless steel tanks under temperature control. The wine matures for 12 months in 50% new French oak barrels and another 12 months in the bottle. The second wine was the DOC white wine Salaparuta from the autochthonous Catarratto vine created.
