Fermentation occurs in stainless steel at a controlled temperature for 2 weeks. After malolactic fermentation the wine rests partly in stainless steel vats and partly in new tonneaux, and in first and second passage barriques for 6 months. Before the bottling stage the wine is aged in steel. This is followed by ageing for at least 2 months in glass before being sold.

Poggio Graffetta is a stone's throw form Ispica, close to Nodo and Modica, villages of the most authentic Sicilian Baroque period, Architecture which marks the rebirth of the Val di Noto after the terrifying earthquake of 1697 which tore all the larger centres of the area to the ground. The wine culture of this south-eastern area of Sicily boasts eighteenth centuy traditions, period in which the region is essentially an enourmous fief of noble families which administer the rural areas of the zone for long periods of time. The cultivation of the Nero d'Avola is difficult and laborious and carried out by hand until a few decades ago, with the aid of mules to dig the soil and transport the wine barrels from the grape pressing room to the points of sale. The culture of bottled wine is more recent history. The acquisition of Poggio Graffetta, by attorney Calogero Cali, aspires to write and important chapter of this history.
