Brasi is Sicilian dialect name of our ancestor, Biagio. He vinified his wines in small chestnut barrels back in the early 1900s. The goal is to rediscover and promote the ancient Sicilian tradition.
Truly unique thanks to 4-6 months of ageing in small chestnut barrels. The combination of two great native Sicilian elements (vine and wood) produces this very distinctive and exclusive wine
