Located between Mazara del Vallo and Trapani, in the surroundings of the enchanting Marsala Salt Pans and just a few kilometres away from the Doric-style temple of the ancient city of Segesta, the Assuli Winery is a modern and efficient reinterpretation of an ancient baglio dating back to the 18th century. A large multi-purpose volume in the heart of western Sicily, nestled among the hills, it consolidates a strong bond with the countryside and the territory in which the Caruso family's winemaking tradition is rooted, now in its third generation with Roberto, Nicoletta and Michele. Assuli, "Under the sun" in Sicilian dialect, comprises about 130 hectares of property, all organically farmed, divided into five plots located at altitudes between 100 and 600 metres above sea level, which enjoy a Mediterranean climate with breezy summers and mild winters. The varieties grown are Catarratto Lucido, Inzolia, Grillo, Zibibbo, Nero d'Avola, Perricone and Syrah, all of which make up D.O.C. Sicilia wines, vinified on site at Contrada Carcitella. The wines are characterised by a style marked by winemaker Lorenzo Landi, who believes in enhancing the expressive power of the vines: delicate, fresh or savoury whites reminiscent of the sea, and reds with a stronger, more decisive character, influenced by heat and wind. Assuli is featured by an eco-friendly atmosphere, which focuses on the production of wines that are strongly territorial and focused on sustainability, an expression of an evolved concept of doing business that is synonymous with planning for the future. In collaboration with the Istituto Vite Vino di Marsala, it is also looking after an experimental field of about 0.3 hectares of land with 600 vine grafts with the aim of bringing ancient vines, known as 'relics', such as Cutrera, Recuno, Vitrarolo, Catanese Nero, Lucignola, and Rucignola, back to everyday life, with the aim of emphasising the plurality of Sicilian biodiversity and the company's link with the territory.
