Nicosia - Generazione Mille898
The true love for Sicily and its ancient wine-makng tradition; the values of a family whose history has, for more than a century, been intertwined with that of Sicilian wine; the valorization of the most valuable native and international varieties cultivated in the island and the constant search for ever higher quality standards, in vineyards and in the cellar. These are the reasons that explain the success of Generazione Mille898 Nicosia, a wide range of wines with a designation of origin and monovarietals of excellent value for money, capable of representing the great variety and richness of modern Sicilian enology.
