Sicilian producer Feudo Disisa increases presence in UK
Feudo Disisa, from the Monreale north-western Sicialian wine region, is increasing its presence in the UK.
The producer plans to invest further to highlight its wines and the DOC of Palermo–Monreale, working closely with its distributor Jeroboams Trade; the wines will also be listed in Jeroboams stores.
Feudo Disisa has been in the Di Lorenzo family for more than 200 years, with a history of producing grapes as far back as the 12th Century. The company now produces fine wines form indigenous grapes such as Cararratto, Inzolia, Grillo, Nero d’Avola and Fiano, and it is in the process of working towards organic certification.
Peter Mitchell MW, wine director at Jeroboams, said: “We are thrilled that Feudo Disisa is taking steps to increase the understanding of these wonderful wines. The family have 150 hectares under vine, with vineyards standing between 350 and 500m above sea level, and the result is wines if incredible elegance and finesse. The diurnal temperature variation, and the altitude of some of these vineyards, allows a freshness that is unusual for the area, and the style of wines. The Di Lorenzo family do not buy in any grapes, instead choosing to limit their production to focus on quality at every stage of production, from vineyard to consumer, which is evidenced in the glass.”
Jeroboams will stock a number of wines from the producer, including a Feudo Disisa Grillo 2016 (rsp £13.95), Chara 2016 (rsp: £13.95); Nera d’Avola (£13.95); Terra Delle Fate Fiano 2016 (rsp £17.95) and Vuaria Nero d’Avola 2012(rsp: £23.95).
