The Company Battiato Vini was born in 2014 from the love and passion of the brothers Battiato for wine that inherit from grandparents and great grandparents very small producers like the many neighbors, grown in an environment of deep rurality.
The winery of Marco and Claudio Battiato is a tiny and very recent reality on the slopes of Etna. We are in Santa Venerina in the province of Catania.
The Battiato brothers inherited and worked 1.5 hectares of land producing about 2,000 bottles a year, a true Sicilian rarity and Italian biodiversity. The volcanic characteristics of these soils reflect all their strength and elegance in the wines. Famous in fact this strip of wine land being the host land of the vineyards among the highest in Italy that reach in some areas even 1000 meters. s.l.m.
The Battiato Farm is fully identified in the essence of Etna DOC. Etna Rosso DOC, in particular, is produced mainly from Nerello Mascalese grape variety that reigns in the hectare and a half inherited from Marco and Claudio, faithful guardians of a centuries-old tradition.
The land from Azienda Agricola Battiato is located on the eastern side of Etna. They are soils of lava origin, which give back to the wines all the grandeur and kindness of a territory rich in minerality in a perfect marriage given not only by graphite, also from iodine thanks to the influence of the coastal breeze that also allows obvious temperature ranges and daily temperatures that rarely, in the summer months, reach very high peaks. Finally, thanks to its particular exposure, this eastern side, is also the one that sees the grapes first ripen, compared to all other areas of Etna.
Today, Marco and Claudio want to combine tradition with evolution, meticulous, experienced and demanding, work in full respect of the territory and its special characteristics, with the care and delicacy of those who respect the environment and the surrounding nature, Proud bastions of a Sicilian tradition that accompanies with the notes of popular songs the efforts of the past and today that give life to a fascinating Etna Rosso DOC: the “ElloNero”.
