法维尼亚纳:Firriato的海边葡萄种植园。

卡拉莫尼庄园坐落在岛屿中南部,距离大海仅几步之遥,在一片狭窄的海岬上,能够眺望到马萨拉海岸,是岛上高处海岬的延伸。葡萄园仅有5公顷,被传统的干石墙所包围,这也是埃加迪的特色庄园风光。卡拉莫尼庄园狭长方向最外围道路面朝大海,距第一个园圃不到10米。这里属于海洋环境,临海且富含矿物。深红色的土壤富含铁元素。这样的土壤真是特别。法维尼亚纳岛是一个独一无二且空前绝后的栖息地。这一地中海岛屿的大部分都由火山岩或花岗岩构成。而卡拉莫尼庄园的土地则由第四纪石灰岩构成,在海底沉积数百万年而成,鱼骨和贝壳的化石在海底沉积,在压力的作用下融入土壤。海风或徐徐拂过,或强劲掠来,总不忘滋润这片沃土。从种植园内部可以清晰分辨四面封闭的隔离带和出口。沿着种植圆周边,打碎的岩石覆盖土地形成隔离带。隔离带上通常种有小麦。20世纪初,埃加迪就有葡萄园,用于食用,而非生产,后来则消失不见。Firriato立志于恢复历史,重新在这片看似不宜种植的土地上引入葡萄品种。在法维尼亚纳,大海在选择和确定葡萄品种及葡萄园农艺管理上起着重要作用。维尼亚纳岛上特有的气候对植物的种植周期有着重要的影响。土壤的物理化学成分,地表下2米的盐水,风的作用和昼夜温差的影响,共同造就了这个非凡的生产环境。我们充分了解了环境因素与种植需求间的相互关系,遵循这些法则,这对葡萄种植的效果至关重要。如此苛刻的种植环境要求里,相对于其他而言,海水的存在尤为重要。它丰富提高了种植环境的特殊性,使之成为这片栖息地的标志。

Calamoni di Favignana

The vineyard

The vineyard lies not even ten meters from the dazzling sea which calls out to you like a siren inviting you to dive in. Unlike Ulysses though, we have the perfect thing to distract us. Prompted by the breeze we turn to look over our shoulder at the five hectares at the tip of the island’s high promontory— land enclosed by uninterrupted lines of low dry-stone walls. It is here we discover the only vineyard in production in all of the Egadi islands—Calamoni di Favignana. As at Cavanera Etnea, Firriato stands out here for its selective yield and its great stylistic scrupulousness which enhances the richness and complexity of each individual territory.

The grape harvest

Every grape harvest at the Calamoni Estate is history in itself. The multiple variables of such a marine habitat interact during the seasons both when the vines are in their dormant stage (end of November-beginning of March) and when they are in their growth-fruit phase (end March-October). The plants’ development is influenced by the extreme variability of the conditions that affect the area’s microclimate, giving life to vintages with core differences between them.

Terroir

The Favonio (Foehn) wind which blows inland from the sea combats the effect of humidity, just as the thicker skins on the grapes form a shield against parasites which contribute to making the characteristics of the wines even more unique.

The wines

The efforts, which only Firriato’s passion can bear in such a difficult and peculiar location, are repaid with three wines from the Favinia line. They are wines which are unique in style, type of production and for their exceptional character. The first wine to take life as a result of this seaside viticulture was “La Muciara”. A blend of Grillo, Catarratto and Zibibbo, it is a wine that has an elegant and complex aromatic spectrum that is prized for its pleasant and vibrant acidity, enveloped by elegant aromatic notes with a flavourful mineral texture. From the red grape varieties of Perricone and Nero d’Avola comes “Le Sciabiche”, characterised by a powerful structure accompanied by enveloping and refined noble tannins against undertones of marked minerality with a rich flavour that recalls the sea. The line is completed by Passulè, an elegant passito from Zibibbo grapes, recognised for its freshness enriched with fruity undertones and here too with a marine tang.
