Brasi Sicilian dialect name of our ancestor, Biagio. He vinified his wines in small chestnut barrels back in the early 1900s.
Brasi resulted from the Sicilian tradition. Aged in small chestnut barrels for about 12 months. A combination of two great indigenous elements (vine and wood) produces a very distinct and exclusive wine
