La vota

La vota

Along the western border of Belicello, the Belice River flows lazily drawing wide spirals: groves of reeds flourish along the dikes, a home for wild bees, little amphibians and migrant birds.

Inside one of those loops, which we have always called La vota, the soil is sandy and deep and is invaded by the River’s waters every couple of years. As a result, a huge amount of sediments collects, enriching the terrain with mineral components.

Here I grow the Cabernet Sauvignon, son of the River, the sand and the Mediterranean Sea.
