It is a cliche that Sicilian wines are very similar among each other, especially when talking about wines from Pachino in Val di Noto, which is an area further south than Tunis. The Nerobuffaleffj, Neromaccarj, Nerobaronj, Nerosanlore are "crus" that take their name from the localities that they originate from and that are only a few kilometres, or even a few hundred metres, away from each other.
The Gulfi winery selected these localities, which are among the oldest and best know in Pachino for the cultivation of Nero d’Avola. Their intrinsic peculiarities and different organoleptic nuances – notwithstanding that they are all Nero d’Avola – struck us from the very beginning and made us decide to respect the integrity of the vines for "cru", which is the true expression of the vineyard in its entirety.
Etna makes Sicily different and makes the difference between the two Sicilies: Western and Eastern. It’s Etna that makes Sicily different and that makes the difference between Western and Eastern Sicily. In front of the tallest active volcano in Europe one can not remain indifferent. The Mountain is, for us from Eastern Sicily, a reference. Our Reseca is the offspring of an old alberlli vineyard in the area of Randazzo, on the northern side of Etna, which encloses the peculiarity and uniqueness of this territory and its mainland climate. It takes strength from the primordial volcanic earth and the indigenous vine "Nerello Mascalese" that is cultivated in "alberello" style: an ancient example of winemaking culture.
