It is cultivated in on the hills near Case Vecchie, in the territories of the estate of Regaleali. The particularity of this wine consists in the harvest in different periods. Part of the grapes is harvested in advance to give freshness and minerality, the other part is harvested later to give structure. This wine is like the fairy tales, a loyal travel companion. It is produced with 100% Grillo variety, cultivated in the vineyards of Sant’Anna and Piana Case Vecchie, that cover 8 hectares.
