PAIRING Meat, Cheese, Pasta


A wine of rare elegance and complexity, a fusion of fruit and spice, typical in the most convincing interpretations of this transalpine grape variety, which benefits from the particular microclimate, with warm rays and cool sea breezes, that make these ancient lands, which belonged to the Princes of Butera, an ideal place for its maturation. Interpreted Syrah from the Principi di Butera estate is the child of careful viticultural choices and maturation for 12 months in 60 hl Slavonian barrels, followed by an additional period of bottle aging. An exuberant and muscular red, which nevertheless does not conceal its generous and soft side, in which a strong Mediterranean heart pulses, as only the great wines of the South know how to be.

It reveals itself with an intense and consistent ruby red color. Aromas of morello cherry, plum and currant combined with more evolved aromas of light roasting and sweet spices lead to a structured, soft and rich sip, with well-integrated and velvety tannins on the palate and a long taste persistence.

It pairs wonderfully with savory stuffed pastas, pastas seasoned with spicy sauces and hare ragout, stews and jugged game. Also excellent with aged pecorino or blue cheeses. Try it with Sicilian-style "farsumagru."

The Winery

In the most austere and profound Sicily lies an oasis of rare beauty, home to the great indigenous grape varieties of Sicily and the land of choice for Nero d'Avola.

The estate extends around an ancient baglio that once belonged to the Princes of Butera, in one of the island's most mineral-rich areas, a stone's throw from the Mediterranean coast, between the Valley of the Temples and Piazza Armerina. The variety and biological heritage of the soils, combined with the particularity of a microclimate that benefits from sea breezes, make these ancient lands, the ideal place for sustainable viticulture and a unique reserve of biodiversity.

Amidst the colors of citrus fruits and the scents of the Mediterranean scrub, elegant wines are born, with refined fragrances and endowed with great intensity and freshness.

The experience
Principi di Butera represents a new gateway to a Sicily waiting to be explored, rich in artistic and natural wonders. A visit to the estate becomes a journey within a journey, which is undertaken once you take the avenue of oleanders that bounds the vineyards, dominated by the historic baglio that towers over the hillock in front.

The tour starts right from the vineyards, the first step for the visitor to discover the native Sicilian varieties: the tale will reveal the difference in vine training, which exposures are selected according to the different grape varieties. A full immersion that continues in the underground cellar, there where they refine the wines of the property.

We will then reach the historic part consisting of the Baglio (the name that defined the fortified farm with a large courtyard that has existed here since the 16th century) and from there we will be able to embrace the entire estate, admiring it in its extension as a peaceful, lush and intoxicating oasis.

After the toast with Neroluce, the experience will continue in the guest quarters, with the tasting of the other two native wines, pairing them with some equally typical flavors, starting with the Principi di Butera oil.
