BAGLIO ASSULIProducers of the great Sicilian indigenous grape varieties
The wine-growing tradition of the Caruso family has its roots deep into the Sicilian soil.
120 hectares of land and high quality 100% organic wines celebrate the authenticity of the local terroir. In the Western side of Sicily, ASSULI, which means “under the sun” in the local dialect, combines tradition and innovation in a magical location. The winery stands in an area renowned for its centenary wine-growing history and can boast the DOC Sicilia certification. The sun, the light, the high minerality of the soil, the Mediterranean perfumes brought by the wind characterize wines of great personality.
The constant pursue of excellence allows the valorization of the indigenous grape varieties, especially Nero d’Avola and Grillo, among the others. Simplicity and respect for the land are the fundamental principles of the daily activities and the choice of producing only wines in purity is the winning key of the international appreciation.
LET’S PRESERVE OUR LANDEnvironment
The organic growing underlines the choice to pursue a model of sustainable development based on the principles of safeguard and valorization of the resources and on the respect for environment and health. The plants are cultivated without the use of chemical agents while the vinification takes place according to the parameters allowed by the law to guarantee genuineness and naturality.
We pay tribute to Sicily with wines that represent the characters of the “Orlando Furioso” offering a unique and epic experience enriched by multiple connections to the Sicilian art and literature. Our two masterpieces, Lorlando and Donna Angelica, are the true protagonists of a fascinating tale full of love stories and passion.
LORENZO LANDIThe winemaker
The success of Assuli is led by visionaries and innovators.
Lorenzo Landi, thanks to his many years of experience, his great professionalism and his deep knowledge of the land, is able to produce flawless wines enhancing the territorial originality: delicate fresh and sapid whites that recall the sea, and structured and powerful reds influenced by the wind and the warm temperatures. Landi lays the foundation for the vinification and elevation of these wines that enclose all the Sicilian sun.
