Syrah

At the Baglio Sorìa Estate, Firriato has long since launched an important oenological project based on winemaking according to organic procedures. Caeles Syrah wine is a product of this. An organic and vegan red,  obtained from grapes grown on the estate. This red grape vine variety takes on natural, wholesome traits that evoke the respect for nature that the company pursues, and its dedication to the production of extremely high quality wine. Caeles Syrah floods the palate with the taste of nature and Sicilian land in every sip. It is a warm, richly alluring wine distinguished by its intense ruby red colour. The use of select endogenous yeasts in the winery demonstrates its strong link to this Sicilian land. It is an area which perfectly enhances all the characteristic qualities of this international vine variety—the most cultivated international vine in Sicily.

Production Area

Baglio Sorìa

The orography and the climate conditions at Baglio Sorìa have allowed the planting of the main international vine varieties next to native ones. Sunlight exposure in the Syrah vineyard allows Firriato to obtain a wine with a higher concentration of precursory aromas.

A culture of love and respect for nature

Grapes produced in the Firriato Estates are cultivated according to the strict guidelines for organic farming. Since its foundation, Firriato has focussed on respecting nature, the local area and the environment—one of the fundamental objectives in the production of quality local wines. In place of the herbicides generally used in non-organic vineyards, only natural agents and microorganisms are employed. The wild grasses play a particular protective role as they represent an important resource for the grapes’ survival. They enrich the soil with nutrients necessary for the maturation of the fruit as well as hosting insects useful in the attack of eventual parasites. Firriato uses this measure in its land dedicated to organic farming to protect the vines, ensuring a healthy and mature harvest, and above all to remain faithful to its organic farming project and the qualitative care of its new labels.
