In the heart of Agrigento’s countryside lie lands with an ancient viticultural history, where countless rows of vineyards draw scenic geometries in the landscape. These magic lands are the Lands of Nero d’Avola, and find their best expressions in the wines of CVA Canicattì.
Since 1969, over 480 vignerons united by their love for these lands have pooled their efforts in CVA Canicattì, a solid entrepreneurial project oriented towards the most demanding international markets. For over 40 years CVA Canicattì has been redefining the concept of viticultural quality, through important investments in technology and management. The work of every single vigneron is driven by a shared philosophy, and projected towards the valorisation of the agricultural and historical traits of one of Sicily’s most versed viticultural areas; the results of this passionate work can be found in every one of CVA Canicattì’s labels.
The main grape is Nero d’Avola, which is best expressed in the winery’s top three wines- Aynat, Scialo e Centuno – to which are added Calio, Fileno (Grillo) and Satari (sparkling). The Aquilae line, instead , represents all the local wines in mono varietal version, Nero d’Avola, Merlot, Syrah, Grillo and Catarratto, and BIO, Grillo and Nero d’avola.
