Here we are again in Sicily on the Sicani mountains at about 650 meters above sea level in Palazzo Adriano where the company was "refounded" in 2004 by Gaetano Gargano and his wife Nicoletta. The company redevelopment and renovation project stems from the couple's desire to restore "agricultural life" to a pristine and biodiverse area to preserve the natural environment and defend and protect the territory.
But it was the meeting with Giampiero Bea about 25 years ago to determine and well outline the beginning of this splendid project. Gaetano fell in love with the work that the Bea family was doing in Montefalco and it was decided to reinvigorate the agricultural activity at Il Censo where with the guidance of Giampiero, he began planting 5 hectares of vineyards divided between the white Cataratto grape, the black variety Perricone and Nero d'Avola.
The entire farm is managed in an organic way and the vinification is carried out according to the principles developed by Giampiero Bea. This is how fantastic natural wines with an indissoluble bond with their territory are born!
