Mahâris, which takes its name from the watch towers that the early inhabitants used to search the sea coast, is the wine that symbolizes the meeting of diverse styles and cultures. It brings together all the favorable complexities of the international varietal Syrah with Sicily’s par excellence growing Mediterranean microclimate.

Harvest Note
The winter has been mild and wetter than usual, feeding the underground water reserves so precious during the summer. After pruning, the vines wept profusely, manifesting the exuberance of the season a few days later. The saplings of Feudo Maccari sprout, first the Grillo then the Nero d'Avola, and in no time they reach the height of the stake that supports them. Spring is very fast and June already has summer temperatures. Summer is the season that most symbolizes these territories; the wind cools the microclimate of the clusters in the sapling. Healthy grapes predict in an excellent result that comes with the September harvest. Ripenesses are excellent and clear, phenolic ripening homogeneous, certainly a vintage of balance and elegance that exalts Syrah.
