Wines from Sicily - Fattorie Azzolino

At an altitude of forty meters above sea level, in the county of Monreale and only a short drive from Palermo, lies Fattorie Azzolino one of the better new generation of Sicilian wine producers. Like Colosi wines this is one of my favorites in Sicily

The Story of Fattorie Azzolino

Fattorie Azzolino is an estate with over a century of history.

They are now at the forefront of the new generation of Sicilian wine makers who are finally producing the excellent wines that the terroir of Sicily merits. The owner, Franco Sacco, has built on the good work begun by his father.

The Wines

The climate in this beautiful part of Sicily is key to producing the excellent wines. Scorching hot summer days are followed by cool evenings.

In fact the wines greatest success, in my opinion, is that in every sip the sunshine and the unique terroir come through.

Varieties include both red and white wines and well known international varieties plus traditional Sicilian ones.

The principle grape varieties are Nero d’Avola, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay, Catarratto. All wines produced are exclusively organic.

Where to Stay

The Palazzo Ducale Suites (click for more) is THE place to stay in Monreale. Family run, new, immaculate and great value and the location in the old town of Monrealle is ideal too.
