Tenuta Benedetta is a small wine-growing and wine-producing business born from our love for Sicily and its unique products. Daniele Noli and his wife are the owners of Tenuta Benedetta, which takes its name form their daughter, who takes part herself in the project. Daniele is a chemist and has inherited his passion for wine from his father. He graduated in Viticulture and Enology and attends to the whole production of the Tenuta. Laura deals with administration.
Our property includes three vineyards: Vigna Laura, Vigna Benedetta and Vigna Mariagrazia.
Something extremely curious: a Sangiovese wine on the Etna. The character of the great Tuscan grapes interprets this magical territory, starting from the deep ruby red colour The nose is immediately fruity: ripe red fruits like black cherry and blackberry.
Impressive debut of this blend of 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio. The colour is a bright ruby red with clear edges.
The soil is surrounded by well drained land with good climatic conditions ideal for growing vines.
Etna is fundamental to our wine production. It provides a unique environment due to the variation in temperatures on different slopes.
windy with a wide variation in temperature of up to 18-20 degrees between night and day. This is important to preserving the grape's aroma.
Etna's typical small tree grown at a density of 9000/10,000 plants per hectare. Vines include: Carricante, Nerello, Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Sangiovese.
Our passion and dedication is evident by glancing at the wine's packaging which conveys the values and territory that we cherish. We fotographed and sketched the hundred-year-old vines in Vigna Laura on the labels and boxes while Benedetta's eyes guard the vineyards. Eyes have always been considered as reflecting the soul, and so too represent the commitment and love that we dedicate to our work - a gurantee for our clients. The drawing of Etna was done by our good friend Marco Agnoletti and is a special edition of 1074 bottles from Vigna Laura. All proceeds from this will go to charity. The 2015 white wine from Vigna Mariagrazia is dedicated to the memory of Benedetta's grandmother who only liked white wine. One can notice a series of vertical dots on the label reading Mariagrazia in braille. The packaging, therefore, is a synthesis of the three senses by which wine can be experienced: sight, smell and taste.
