Gulfi is one of the largest Sicilian producers that focus on creating small lots of high quality wines
which celebrate the characteristics of native varietals such as Nero dAvola, Frappato, Nerello Mascalese and Carricante.
The attitude at Gulfi is more akin to that of Piemonte or Burgundy than other Sicilian producers. Their ethos is a cru philosophy, showing the range of varietal character due to vineyard sites. What is accepted in Burgundy (i.e. the distinction between Chambolle-Musigny and Veugot) is rarely considered in Sicily.
All Gulfi vineyards are at a minimum of 400 metres above sea level, some as high as 850m asl. This takes advantage of the hot Sicilian sun without the over-baked, -madeirised? style of recent years.
All vineyards are organically dry-farmed, with the belief that the respect for traditional methods provides the greatest results.
These elements combine to produce wines that are terroir-driven, mineral and elegant. Some of the best wines emerging from one of the most exciting regions of Italy.
