The complexity of the bouquet offers a captivating revelation of delicate notes of blackberries, plums and Marasca cherries, accompanied by sensitive nuances of liquorice, ginger, cloves and juniper berries. Unrivalled riches fragrant with Sicilian character. Fresh and irresistible tannins enhance the elegance and sumptuousness of a wine that knows it shines with inimitable charm. Its fruitiness is vivacious and ambitious, nicely balanced with a reduced and pleasant acidity. A clean palate is needed to enjoy its authentic fullness.

History Drawing inspiration from one of the old bowed instruments that was most esteemed in the courts of the Late Middle Ages, sound and silence find perfect harmony in a glass of Ribeca. The Arab origins of this celebrated instrument recall the history of Sicily, a history of conquests and battles, innovation and greatness, splendour and glory. Ribeca is a wine that tells of the extraordinary determination of a grape in danger of extinction that manages to prevail thanks to its courage to stand out. It is like an echo reverberating an age-old taste through the air, which returns to please the senses of those who are sensitive to art and delight in interpreting the role of a rebec player in a silent search for pleasure.
Vineyards location Countryside of Trapani – Pianoro Cuddìa estate. Exposure: south/south-westerl. Altitude: 200 meters above sea level.
Climate The rainfall this year was lower compared to average rainfall values for Sicily and mainly occurred during the spring. The cool temperatures and scarce rainfall had a significant effect on the harvest, which began on 16th September, with a slightly lower yield of grapes. Although the yield was slightly lower than usual, the fruit was ripe and developed an excellent flavour thanks to the considerable differences in temperature between day and night that were seen from the second half of August. The grapes, hand picked by the workers with patience and passion, were opulent and healthy, resulting in wines with a great finish and aromatic quality.
