Centopassi

Sicily, Italy

Sicily, Italy Centopassi means one hundred steps; this unusual name refers to a specific distance of land and the special story of Peppino Impastato, a land in need of redemption and as well a few young Sicilians. Centopassi is made up of social co-operatives that, under the brand Libera Terra, cultivate the lands seized from the mafia in Sicily. Passion, commitment and skill drive the all-organic management of the vineyards, entirely located in the region of Upper Belice Corleonese, an area particularly suited for the production of high quality wine. Open and unpolluted vistas, with calcareous peaks rising up on a plateau at a very high mean altitude, make this Mediterranean corner an ideal venue to grow grapes. While in the vineyards the yields are always far below the maximum limits allowed by the rules, in the cellar the focus is entirely on full respect of the natural character of the products and on their ability to express their region of origin. The Centopassi brand, named after the movie by Marco Tullio Giordana, is dedicated to Peppino Impastato, a young Sicilian that gave up his life in the struggle against the mafia.
