The d’Alessandro Winery was founded in 2006 with the aim of reinterpreting, within a modern context, the traditional wines of Sicily.
Its technological innovation lies in the harnessing of alternative sources of energy to help power its production. The Winery’s more than 800m² of solar panels make d’Alessandro unique among its kind. The new cellar, of around 2100 m² and designed by the Rome-based Studio Fontanesi, draws inspiration from traditional Sicilian rural architecture. Situated just a few kilometres from the city of Agrigento and the historic Valley of the Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the structure is surrounded by over 2.5ha of land.
A young and dynamic team, heirs of century-old family traditions with strong ties to the local area, presents itself to the public with unique wines born through an alliance between tradition and innovation formulated by the oenologist Tonino Guzzo. The fertile land, the air dense with aromas, the purity of the water, the fire of the Sicilian sun. All these contribute to the full body of the wines of d’Alessandro.
These four natural elements fuse together through a process that marries tradition and innovation, the past and the present of a land that has always brought forth masterpieces and has jealously guarded its secrets.
This was the inspiration for the d’Alessandro Winery when it decided to found its own wine production, which, with an eye towards the future, could at the same time keep the memory of its family alive.
A natural expression of the Agrigento region, d’Alessandro’s Inzolia is a white wine full of elegance and pleasure. Hints of citrus combine with fragrances of white flower to create a fine, balanced taste with just the right amount of acidity. Suitable for both winter and summer, its full character can be best enjoyed accompanied by fine food.
