Duca di Salaparuta

The winery near Palermo on the Italian island of Sicily was founded in 1824 by Edoardo Alliata di Villafranca. After being owned by the region for a long time, it is now part of the huge Illva Saronno group. No DOC wines are produced. Around 830,000 cases of wine are produced annually. The grapes are supplied in large quantities from central and western Sicily. The largest share of production is accounted for by the two dry IGT wines "Corvo Rosso" (mainly Nero d'Avola) and "Corvo Bianco" (mainly Catarratto), which are among the most famous Sicilian brand wines. Other wines are the white "Colomba Platino" (from Inzolia and Grecanico), the red wine "Duca Enrico" (varietal from Nero d'Avola) and the Bianco di Valguarnera (Inzolia), also aged in barrique.
