The French elegance expressed by Sicilian Terroir

Camelot

Sicilia D.O.C.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Camelot’s elegance is the result of lengthy research, over more than 20 years, which Firriato has dedicated to guaranteeing the best climate and soil conditions for growing Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Baglio Sorìa vineyards, located at an altitude of 120metres above sea level, with their vicinity to the Trapani coast and the uniqueness of their terroir, contribute to determining the ideal conditions for the cultivation of these two vines. The red marl in its soils allows the earth, during the hotter months, to remain compact and not crack. This maintains constant humidity in the subsoil which favours a balance between the ripened fruit’s sugar levels and its polyphenols, which is harder to achieve in hotter climates. Ageing for 12 months in French oak barriques gives the wine incomparable aromatic elegance and flavour.

Production Area

Baglio Sorìa

Cultivation of international varieties is concentrated on the Baglio Sorìa Estate, where the terroir stands out for the mix of clays and red marls in its soil. These are characteristics of areas most dedicated to wine-growing and producing.

Firriato’s Blend

The exceptional combination of the humidity in the subsoil, and the hotter climate of the summer months in Sicily, favours the elegant characteristic notes that make the pleasure of drinking Camelot so unique. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes grown on the Baglio Sorìa Estate are characteristically lower in pyrazines. This trait creates a natural condition that gives Camelot elegance and smoothness, limiting to a minimum the prevalent vegetable notes with nuances of red pepper and tomato leaf. As ever, it is the terroir that determines the elegant development of this Bordeaux vine in Sicilian soil. The relationship between the microclimate and the soil creates the ideal conditions for gradual ripening of the grapes, which influences their complete aromatic development. Camelot is the result of this combination of characteristic notes which completely express Firriato’s style and their desire to create wines that are true embodiments of their terroirs of origin.
