SICILY

The only Sicilian DOCG is the Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG, from the Ragusa area, produced with the Frappato grape. The DOC DOC also includes white wines based on the Inzolia grape variety. The DOC Eloro is dedicated to the reds, with the types Frappato, Nero d’Avola and Pignatello. In the Syracuse area we find the DOC DOC and Noto DOC, based on the same vines. We recall the Moscato di Siracusa, a DOC time in its own right, now incorporated as a type in the DOC Syracuse. In the Catania area, Etna DOC, whose vineyards located on the slopes of the volcano give the wines a strong mineral characterization. In the province of Messina we mention the DOC lighthouse, one of the first in Sicily, based on the vines of Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Nocera. Le Lipari, with Malvasia delle Lipari DOC and white wines of the island of Salina (Salina IGT). In the province of Palermo we have the County of Sclafani DOC and Contessa Entellina DOC, which include all types of wines of the island, while in the province of Agrigento we mention the Sciacca DOC, the Sambuca di Sicilia DOC and the Santa Margherita di Belice DOC. In the province of Caltanissetta the Riesi DOC. The province of Trapani represents more than half of the cultivated area and the production of Sicilian wine. This happens also thanks to Marsala DOC, with the homonymous fortified wine based on Grillo and / or Catarratto vines (all varieties and all clones), and / or Ansonica (locally called Inzolia or Insolia) and / or Damaschino for gold and amber Marsala; Perricone (locally called Pignatello) and / or Calabrese (Nero d’Avola) and / or Nerello Mascalese for the Marsala ruby. Other DOCs of the province are Delia Nivolelli DOC, Erice DOC and Salaparuta DOC. Finally, we should mention the Moscato di Pantelleria DOC also in the passito version, obtained from 100% Zibibbo or Moscato di Alessandria grapes. In the whole region there are 23 DOC and 7 IGT.
