Vigna di Pettineo: Biologic wine with the total respect of nature
Vigna di Pettineo is a biologic project in constant evolution in which the origins of the territory, the research on the field and the respect for the environment are the bases of the philosophy of the company.
We don't want only to produce a biologic wine, we have wanted to produce it respecting the nature. To obtain this result we have introduced some practices among which the respect of the biodiversities, the grassing, the use of vegetal coal., the re-use of rain water and the production of electric energy from renewable sources.
The biodiversity is not the simple sum of animal species, plants and microorganisms, it means also that all the species, mankind included, have been evolving together influencing each other, sometimes for centuries, everyone with its personal and unique history.
For this reason we apply the grassing, sometimes everlasting too, that besides defending the grounds from the erosion, encourage the development of different species of microorganisms which active life in the subsoil.
To attract insects which otherwise would have disappeared we have planted 80 meters of flowered bushes for each hectare of vineyard.
In the end, to give a refuge to many families of reptiles, we have built some walls typical of the province of Ragusa around the lands.
Our experiments in the sustainable agricultural field goes from the use of different blends of leguminous to the use of vegetal bio-coal to regulate the humidity of the grounds during the driest periods and to improve the activity of the microorganisms.
Moreover, we are studying the use of oils and vegetal extracts in substitution of copper products and the sulphur, the use of biodegradable materials, and the reduction of sulphites during the production of the wines.
We, in Vigna di Pettineo, have no intention to stop our research and progress. Articolo - 11/04/2016 - http://www.onlyitalianproducts.us/ ( Network O.I.P. )

The Black Pig from the Nebrodi Mounts Capocollo
The Nebrodi Mounts Black Pig Capocollo
The definition of "Nebrodi Mounts Black Pig" describes a local race of pigs typical of the territories within the area of the Nebrodi Mounts in the north west Sicily.
Judging from the fossils and the references written by ancient writers, the presence of the animal had been already confirmed during the greek period (7-6 century B.C), as a testimony of the immense heritage that is still nowadays safeguarded in these valleys.
During the middle age its breeding decreased due to the religion of the new conquerers; another factor that determined its decline was the gradual disappearing of woods which previously covered most of the Sicilian territory. In the last years there has been a convinced reintroduction of the breeding of this specie, on which multiple studies have been made in order to give value to its productions.
The Black Sicilian pig is now a officially recognized race and managed by the ANAS (National Association of the Farmers of Pigs)
The Nebrodi Mounts black pig is black skinned, and it has strong black bristles that reach the length of 10cm almost, looking like a mane and reminding of a boar, it has small-middle size (60-65 cm average)
The breeding system is "en plain air", that is to say that the Pig lives exclusively in the natural environment fed with barley and field beans to maintain the organoleptic qualities of its meat and all its natural genuiness.
The Capocollo is taken from the neck of the Black pig and its meat is naturally very salty and perfumed, and it is worked by able masters with natural aromas.
Aspect: Cylindric and lengthened shape
Consistency: tender, compact
Aspect after the cut: The slice is compact and its colour is red intense with some variable fat veins.
Weight: between 1 and 1.8 kilograms.
Smell and Taste: persistent and intense accompanied by the natural species and aromas.
Curiosities: it is exclusively produced with black pig meats from Nebrodi Mounts. It takes its name from the nearest part to the head of the black pig.
