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.

Calamoni di Favignana


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.
