Gaetano Grillo

Sicilia DOC RISERVA
Limited edition

A path that sees Art and Viticulture come closer, touch each other and merge, until they become a single and living material: this is how Opificio Gibellina.
From the meeting between Tenute Orestiadi and theBrera Academy of Fine Arts the desire to express on the label what is breathed in every day takes shape barriques, in which wine finds its most harmonious form and art overturns emotions, touching the most intimate strings of the human soul.
Opificio Gibellina wants to represent, thanks to the contribution of 5 artists - Stefano Pizzi, Gaetano Grillo, Nicola Salvatore, Pietro Coletta, Enzo Esposito - the essence not only of Tenute Orestiadi, but of the city itself, which since its new foundation has had a fundamental fulcrum in art, which daily supports agricultural production aimed at enhancing the peculiarities of the territory.

This type of soil is found on the gentle hills of the Trapani hinterland, rich in silty-clayey substances, compact and resistant to drought. Thanks to its characteristics, it is configured as an ideal habitat for the breeding of numerous varieties of both red and white berried vines and becomes for us the perfect soil for the cultivation of Syrah and Nero d'Avola, used not only in purity , also in a blend for the Orestiadi Ludovico, a wine dedicated to Ludovico Corrao and the flagship of the cellar.
