Tenuta Valle delle Ferle was founded in 2016 by two thirty-year-olds, Claudia Sciacca and Andrea Annino. Two engineers deeply in love with their own territory who have decided to resume in a millenary history, made of uses and experiences consolidated over time, revealing an ancient millstone of the XVIII century. surrounded by 10 hectares of vineyards, the oldest vineyards of Caltagirone, planted as they were once "ammiscati", or alternating, in a completely random way in the same row, vines of Nero d'Avola and Frappato. With their skills and passions, they renovated the farmhouse, making it a modern cellar. What has remained the same is their way of making wine. Deeply convinced that the wine is the most authentic expression of the territory that produces it, Claudia and Andrea, who immediately started working in organic, developed, in fact, to produce their Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG according to tradition, that is, not making wine Separate the two varieties that compose, but working together from the fermentation: this is how you do what you once call Cerasuolo di Caltagirone. The wine of which also Plinio the Old speaks, the Murgentia, with all probability the ancestor of the modern Cerasuolo, that according to the author could never be missing in the tables of the furniture of the Mediterranean; the same wine that pushed the Aegean traffickers of the Greek colony of Kamarina and added through the territories of Niscemi and Vittoria, along the oldest wine road ever historically documented, up to Caltagirone, where we bought both wine and ceramic prices for its marketing. This story, a Valle delle Ferle Estate, is precisely Claudia and Andrea to tell it to their visitors. It is not just the welcome to be followed directly by the two young owners, but every single phase of the wine production process. Active and passionate members of the FIVI (Italian Federation of Independent Winegrowers), Claudia and Andrea use only their own people, because only these are certain of the quality and because only these know the history that collects in the glass, that of the Valle delle Ferle district. In love with every single plant of their land, Claudia and Andrea treats it with care but without intrusiveness, in total respect of its times and its potential, until the strictly manual harvest, the moment when the whole family gets together to celebrate the birth of a newcomer: the wine of that vintage! Tenuta Valle delle Ferle is not just a cellar, but the place where Claudia and Andrea try to relive the history of the territory of Caltagirone to each visitor through their wine.
