VINUDILICE is a rosé that arises directly from the vineyard itself. This wine a blend of the white and red grapes that grow there, harvested and vinified together. Vineyard cultivation is done by hand and with a Mule, using natural products. Biotechnologies are not used in winemaking. Transfer and bottling are carried out according to the phases of the moon. In vintages in which the wine, due to weather conditions, does not naturally reach an alcohol content of 11%, we produce a sparkling version using metodo classico with bottle fermentation on the yeasts for at least 17 months. VignaBosco is the only vineyard in the area, located in a wild, uncontaminated part of Mt. Etna, rich in biodiversity. At least ten different grape varieties, white and red, have coexist for over a hundred years together. Vinudilice takes its name from the extensive oak forest surrounding the vineyard. In Latin the holm oak is called Quercus Ilex, or Ilice in Sicilian. The word Vinudilice means Wine of the Lecci, or the wine of the holm oak forest.
