Red Soil

In south-western Sicily, where the color of the land evokes the red hues typical of the Mediterranean sunsets, we find this type of soil, a sand and skeleton rich soil (stones). With a very loose composition and full of ferrous microelements, in the Belìce Valley it is characterized by a dry microclimate perfect for the farming of red grape varietals. It is the soil of choice for Perricone: another name of the cultivar, in fact, is Pignatello, precisely in relation to the \\\"pignate\\\", a Sicilian term that indicates the pots made with the same red earth through which the varietal grants its maximum expressions.
