Principi di Butera
Principi di Butera is located in Sicily in the Riesi DOC area, an area of sublime beauty that connects two of Sicily's seven UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Valley of the Temples (Agrigento) and Villa Romana del Casale (Piazza Armerina).
Here, Principi di Butera's main grape variety is a prestigious native: Nero d'Avola, a symbol of the island wine-making culture aroundthe world. The vineyards, located at an altitude of between 320 and 350 meters above sea level, in the middle of two bands of hills that rise up to 700 meters above sea level, are characterized by a unique combination of a hot and arid climate, incoming breezes from both the sea and the neighboring hills, long and constant solar radiation throughout the year, and intense daily temperature ranges. Thanks to this unique climate, the typical features of the area and the great local wine- making culture, exclusive production methods have been experimented with, resulting in a series of elegant, rich and long-lived reds, and a Metodo Classico with great finesse, the first example of white vinification of Nero d'Avola.
