Feudi del Pisciotto is an old manor with 44 hectares of vineyards in the heart of the Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG area, and a point of reference for wine lovers, thanks to wines that have won prizes all over the world. These include the Nero d'Avola Versace, which was included in the top 100 wines in the world by Wine Spectator. Alongside the top quality basic line, Linea Fico also offers the Linea Feudi del Pisciotto, a line that combines excellent quality wine with the beauty of labels created by the most important Italian Fashion Designers. L’Eterno, pinot noir in its purest form and the Grand Vin of the winery, is the symbol of the quality of the wine making project of Feudi del Pisciotto, and its commitment to social issues.
The Feudi del Pisciotto winery combines respect for tradition and nature with the most modern technology, and produces around 400,000 bottles with 16 different labels. At Feudi del Pisciotto, the union between ancient and modern is also celebrated by bringing back the old wine making process that only uses the force of gravity for moving the must. In fact, the grapes are picked by hand in the vineyard, and after further sorting and removal of the stalks, they slide into the vats in the Winery, moved by the force of gravity. This saves energy and limits carbon dioxide emissions, but above all, it prevents the deterioration of the raw material that would take place if oenological pumps were used to move the grapes.
In Sicily, the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal acquires absolutely unique characteristics. Lacking strong vegetal notes, this 100% Cabernet is a wine of great structure with a polyphenolic component ideal for optimal ageing. Drawn by Angela Missoni, the label is a tribute to the oenological multiculturalism of Sicily, where the combination of colors and patterns – like the countless vines that proliferate on the island – creates a fascinating final harmony.
Tasting notes: without vegetable notes, typical of this grape variety, it is of great structural level and with a polyphenolic component of wine suitable to long aging.

It is really good if combined with red meats, roasts, goat and lamb. But also with porcini mushrooms and aged cheeses.
