BLACK SOIL WITH WHITE PEBBLESL : These vineyards in Contrada Biddine Soprana and Contrada Biddine Sottana are located in low-lying soil at roughly 100 meters above sea level. The soil is black, relatively compact and riddled with white stones. The soil structure makes it possible for roots to oxygenate freely, extending down deep into the ground.
The company produces a red wine here, Frappato, which draws complex perfumes and a decent acidity from the characteristics of the terrain.
