    Tenuta Rapitala, , Italy
    Rapitala
    Tenuta Rapitala, situated in Sicily in the area of Camporeale, is made up of 70 acres of which 28 are vineyard. It extends over the gentle hills between 100 – 300 meters high, where clay and sand alternate and merge. The perfect aspect and the special composition of the soil make it ideal for the cultivation of the finest vine varieties. The winery Rapitala is named for the river that runs through the property.

    A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs from the San Pablo Bay to the Mendocino County border. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the “true” Sonoma Coast, marked by high rainfall, marine soils, cool temperatures, and saline ocean breezes, from which one can actually see the ocean—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, creating a diversity of wine styles. Contained within the appellation is the much smaller and more focused Fort Ross-Seaview AVA.

    Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant [Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah, with high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and fruit that is rarely overripe. One of the most favorable sites within the region is the Petaluma Gap, where a break in the coastal mountain range allows Pacific winds and fog to funnel through and cool the vineyards.
