Project Description

Gulfi

Sicily’s iconic award-winning maker of top quality, organic Nero d’Avola

“Simply put, Gulfi is one of the best – if not the best – producers of Nero d’Avola wines in Sicily as well as one of Italy’s top wine estates.” according to Ian D’Agata, renowned Italian wine writer. This iconic, highly awarded, certified organic producer has vineyards in three sub-regions of Sicily: DOCG Cerasuolo di Vittoria/Classico, DOC Eloro and DOC Etna.

A family business, Gulfi and the Catania family deserve huge credit for being the first Sicilian winery to believe in and make single-zone, Cru, Nero d’Avola wines. This Cru story is told within the Pachino area (DOC Eloro) where the Maccari, Baroni, Bufaleffi and San Lorenzo zones produce wonderfully concentrated and elegant – but very different    Cru wines. Gulfi also lays claim to a raft of other hugely expressive, unique wines, including Pinò – a highly celebrated Pinot Noir grown 850m above sea level on the slopes of Mount Etna.

Obsessed by telling a unique story from Sicily across a number of different varieties and sub-zones, Gulfi not only adds further strength to this commitment to quality by using the alberello training systems – arguably the best for producing wines of complexity – but also, Gulfi’s consulting winemaker, Salvo Foti, knows more about Sicily and its wines than anybody else!
