Silvia Maestrelli, wine producer in her Tuscany estate of Villa Petriolo at Ceretto Guidi, her husband Roberto Silva and winemaker Federico Curtaz have decided, with passion and conviction, to stake their bets on Sicily. In 2007, fascinated by this extraordinary beautiful and rich island, they bought a XVIII Century palmento, a large covered fermenting vat made of lava stone, which overlooks a one hundred year old vineyard, some 17 acres of Nerello Mascalese vines. “I’vigne di Fessina”, as people here define the vineyards of the estate, are guarded by a magnificent tree, whose roots, like a snake, wrap around the boundary wall of the hamlet of Rovittello and whose branches soar upwards towards the Nebrodi mountains. People call it Millicucco, the fascinating and hieratic guardian of the village.

What to drink with... green salad.

Gone are the days when a Green Salad meant a few leaves of round lettuce. Then came Cos or Romaine, Raddiccio, Endive, and Fennel. Now we have young leaves of spinach, watercress and rocket to add a little spiciness. So which wine? With a vinaigrette, try our special Sicilian Tenuta di Fessina A’Puddara Etna Bianco made from the local Carricante grape or its neighbour Tannu Bianco: a blend of Chardonnay or Grillo. A creamy dressing will stand up to our Les Fleurs de Montblanc Chardonnay from the Languedoc-Roussillon or one of our rosés. If the salad is a mere accompaniment to the main dish, then go with the most intense flavour: steak and salad, pick a red.
