Sicilian Wine Adventures – Part 25; A picture is worth a thousand words


Why not follow Wine Virtuosity on Facebook or Twitter?

Some are blessed with the ability to write, some with an eye for photography. I’m not sure I belong to any of the groups but I do know I love an inspiring post and a good photo. For me, those sites are what I visit the most. Visit Tim Atkin’s site and you will understand what I’m trying to say.

The site of San Lorenzo consists of eight hectares at an altitude of 750-780 meters above the sea-level. The vines are between 60 and 100 years of age. The Feudo (Randazzo) site consists of six hectares at an altitude of 650-670 meters above the sea-level. Vines ranging from 50 years of age to a century old. Giuseppe Russo don’t use all the grapes from his properties. Some are sold since they don’t meet the requirements. Yet.
