Wine maker notes
Among the Lauria wines, the most structured wine isthe Alacre that ages for one year in raw wooden barrels (of oak), thus gaining in maturity. Nero d’Avola is the grape - that grows strong in soils that are very clayey - nourishing from it intensity and complexity. Intense red in color, it is characterized for a balanced acidity, brings pleasant “signs” of macerated fruit and it benefits, individually, from its slightly aggressive tannins.

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.
