White Soil

The white soil, typical of the hills of the Belice Valley, the white land is of medium compactness with a very high limestone and gypsum component, coming from the numerous chalky-sulphurous formations present in the area. In this area, the dry microclimate with good water retention enhances in this area the typical minerality of the ground, making it the deal soil for the cultivation of indigenous white varietals such as Grillo, Zibibbo, Inzolia, Catarratto and Grecanico.
