Wine maker notes
It could be called the “foreigner” among the Lauria wines, even though by a bit: the only one that doesn’t “grow” around Alcamo, but nourishes of Sicilian sandy lands, not very distant from the beaches of Scoglitti, in the area of Ragusa. It’s from these “lean” lands which it owes its attractively weak color and its lightness. Of rare grapes that at one time were cultivated only to eat, known in the past as the wine of the royals, “speaks” of cherry, aromatic herbs and white pepper. Summer is its season.

Alcamo is an ancient city founded in 828 by the Muslim commander al-Kamuk (after whom it is named). The Normans came into town around 1060 moving the Muslims out. Move over Normans, the Christians show up in 1221 followed by the Kingdom of Naples who reigned until 1618 when The House of Bourbon from France stepped in. Two centuries later the citizens of Alcamo were strong supporters of Garibaldi, who overthrew the Bourbons in Sicily and united what we know as today’s Italy. With wine making in his family blood, Vito Lauria decided to attend the University of Udine in Friuli where he obtained a degree in Enology in 2003. After stepping off the campus he worked at a number of wineries in northern Italy for a few years before returning to Sicily in 2005. Vito came home to open the old family winery in Alcamo, 30 miles west of Palermo.
