The Possente flag waves in the province of Trapani. In the biggest vinicultural area in Europe, at altitudes of almost 400 meters above the sea level, vines grow luxuriant, thanks to the typical mediterranean climate. Small portions of quality with their variegated morphology and their peculiar micro-climate. Along the slopes crossing the hills, sandy and chalky soils coexist. 37 hectares of vineyards, located between Alcamo and Salaparuta, in which the terroir gives an intense and strong taste to the wines. These are the territories in which Possente’s wines are born, becoming the expression of the vinicultural vocation which has always belonged to these places.
From the back-country to the coast, the territory of Alcamo is full of espalier vineyards, which are the expression of an ancient history having its roots in the 16th century. Even more ancient vinicultural traditions are those of the territory of Salaparuta, in which the first cultivations can be dated back to the Greek domination.
The territories of Alcamo and Salaparuta, which are considered the most renowned vinicultural areas in Italy, give birth to the two classic Possente DOC wines: “Rahal, Salaparuta DOC” and “Bunifat, Alcamo DOC”, expression of the quality and genuineness of the DOC wines.
