Grapes are hand-picked around mid October and destemmed. Fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature in stainless steel vats, with a c.21 days long maceration, using a specific indigenous yeast selected in the vineyard by Benanti. The maturation occurs in used tonneaux of French oak for about 12 months and then in stainless steel; refining in the bottle for approximately 10 months. South-western slope of Mount Etna in Contrada Cavaliere (part of the village of Santa Maria di Licodia), particularly suited for its high elevation and abundant luminosity. The climate is less rainy than other slopes of Mount Etna, with high ventilation and luminosity and extremely significant diurnal range. The soil is sandy, volcanic, rich in skeleton and minerals, with subacid reaction.
