About the Producer

For over a century Feudo Disisa has belonged to the Di Lorenzo family who had the intuition of discovering the potential of this land and, using the most advanced technologies, managed to transform the original pasture and sowing fields into luxuriant olive groves. In the years between 1930 and 1940 the estate underwent its first great transformation thanks to the work of Mario Di Lorenzo who widened the production area both of vines and olive trees, radically changing the territory’s agricultural, economic and social configuration. The estate is situated over more than 100 hectares of vineyards, perched on the hills of the historic village of Monreale, between Palermo and Trapani. It has always been known for the excellent quality of its products, obtained through a balanced approach to research, innovation and respect for tradition.

 Baglio di Grisi recalls its name to the word Grisi that comes from the Greek word “Krysos” meaning “Gold”, which later became in the Byzantine period “Grysòs”, “Golden Land”, where the word “Gold” refers precisely to the richness of the fertile and cultivated land, which have made these places full of charm and magic. The origin of this name seems to be referred to an ancient Arabic legend according to which - in a cave near the Feudo Disisa - a huge treasure would be hidden, left there from Saracen people when in 1091 the Norman kicked them out from the Island.


Grapes

100% Chardonnay


Vineyard

Feudo Disisa boasts a rich production of grapes, coming both from autochthonous and international grapes, from which high quality wines are produced. The Chardonnay vineyards are situated at an altitude of about 400 to 500 meters above sea level near Monreale (Palermo). The soil is characterised by clay. Planting density is 4,400 plants/ha and the training system is counter-espalier.


Vinification

The grapes are hand-picked, destemmed and delicately crushed. The cooled and softly pressed must is then transferred into stainless steel tanks, where the alcoholic fermentation begins at a temperature of 13°C. After slowly fermenting for 30-40 days, the wine obtained is racked and kept in contact with the fine lees for at least a month, in order to increase its elegance and structure.


Ageing

Four months in steel with at least two months in the bottle.
