Set between the municipalities of Marsala, Salemi and Val di Mazara, the terroirs of Tenute Galfano are medium textured clay loam and pebbly, lying on mid-hills. More than 50 hectares planted with vines, scattered within a radius of 30 kilometres, and differing according to soil, altitude, temperature ranges, exposure and age of the vines. This selection originates from a desire to maximise the potential of the varietal vines: white wines, whose vines are grown on limey, pebbly soil, are distinguished by their minerality, aromatic complexity and floral intensity. Red wines, structured and rounded, start from vines grown in clay soil on the hills.
Interpreting the harvest as far as possible, by monitoring the vineyard constantly, is the secret to conferring a unique, recognisable personality on the wine in order to best express its Mediterranean roots.
Sicily’s microclimate is ideal for growing vines: the exposure of the land, the winds and wide temperature ranges in summer distinguish and promote the physiological cycles of the slow, natural maturation of the grapes, giving freshness, authenticity and aroma to the white wines, structure and body to the reds.
