Giusafra is the 'farm of Piana family. The name is the acronym of the members: Joseph, Giusi, Sara, Salvatore, Francesca. The company instead stems from the passion of the Savior (Turi) which for three decades takes care of the earth and its fruits with competence and satisfaction.
With an area of almost 8 hectares at an altitude of 700 meters above sea level, the fund is cultivated with olive groves and vineyards, and a small part by secular frutteto.Piante from twisted trunk and short hair, which are added over the years young specimens, for a total of 1500 trees, mainly the cultivar Nocellara Etna, a lesser part of Moorish, Biancolilla, Tonda Iblea. Since 2009, the company provides on-site to milling, the second cold extraction technique, in order to minimize the time that elapses between the collection, by hand as tradition, and the squeezing of the fruit.
The vineyard was rebuilt in 2003 and after 4 years of production consolidation gave the first harvest in the 2007 harvest helpful Convinced of the need to preserve and pass on the native varieties, the company has chosen to focus on the production of red wine, with the choice of vine Nerello mascalese and mimor part of Nerello cap.
Cultivation is the sapling, typical of the Etna campaigns.
The collection of the grapes takes place in the traditional way, as well as wine making, obtained in red for maceration. The clusters are de-stemmed and pressed in a soft way. The must, whose hat is constantly wet then goes for a delestage in order to enhance the puculiari characters of red wine Etna, color and tannin.
