I Custodi is owned and operated by Mario Paoluzi, who has teamed up with the organic vineyard management team I Vigneri and Etna-wine guru Salvo Foti. Paoluzi’s ultimate purpose is to preserve, protect, and guard the land (hence the name ‘I custodi’ which literally translates to ‘I guard’). I Custodi consists of four vineyards that produce 5 wines. The vines are albarello-trained (or bush-vines) and some date back over 100-years old. The vineyards sit between 600 and 900m above sea level, offering a beautiful and rare balance between extended sunshine hours, altitude, and sea influence. The Ante cuvée is a racy, vibrant white from 90% Carricante blended with Grecanico and Minella.
