Sicily, Campobello, località Cristo: down there, the intense blue of the sea. The gypsum and limestone hills look directly at the heart of the Mediterranean, facing Africa. The dazzling white soil reflects the light of the sun: here Laluci, which means "the light" in the Sicilian dialect, is born.
This light is a symbol for the original purity of the cricket found on this bottle and the wine has a rennet apple, white peach, citrus and orange blossom overtone, which is made even more powerful thanks to graphite and hydrocarbons. It’s not very sweet but very citrusy and rich, which makes it perfect with fried sea fish.


BAGLIO DEL CRISTO DI CAMPOBELLO

Noble Agrigento lineage set up in the year 2000 by the three family men and raised day by day. Within Baglio del Cristo di Campobello: thirty hectares of vineyards, ten vineyard sites uniting to form a single body, within the confines of a fifty-hectare estate. Deep soil, both calcareous and chalky, spread over hills that lie between 230 and 270 meters above sea level, just 8.000 meters from the coast. For the most part planted with a density of 5.000 vines per hectare. Our grapes are native and harvested by hand.
