Punta dell'Ufala

Punta dell'Ufala

The company is in Vulcano one of the seven Aeolian Islands. Managed by Paola Lantieri in 2003, she decides to change her life and buy a home, about eight hectares of land, where she spent her summer vacation, trying to recover a farm that had been abandoned for decades. Volcanic, loose, heavily precipitated siliceous soils, where a fine sand with the rising of the wind, is attached to the grapes to give the wines a roughness and a mineral smell that makes them unique. Paola, having no knowledge of viticulture or agronomy, disassociated the soil, planted Malvasia and Corinth Black barbatelle, fought against wild rabbits to make his own wine, exactly what reminded him of the unique aromatic wine that produced the wines Vulcan inhabitants during his childhood. In the vine does not use herbicides or chemical fertilizers, the harvest is manual and the drying is done on traditional "cannizzi" for a period ranging from 8 to 12 days. Production yield is very low around 25-28 quintals per hectare, and even water is not available for rescue. In the cellar the minimum of necessary interventions is made. There are no wineries in Vulcano, so Paola collects the bunches in wooden boxes every time they harvest, and carries them on the ship, which in turn takes them to Salina, where vinification takes place. Paola's dream came true after he pursued and pursued him with an unconscious will.
