The jewel in our crown at Santa Tresa is mentioned in an article by Raffaele Mosca, where he writes about typical Sicilian varieties.

Raffele awarded Santa Tresa Orisi Terre Siciliane IGP 2020 91 POINTS and wrote: "Rescued from the Nebrodi mountains and planted on the Vittoria plateaus in the southeast, the Orisi relic grape has genetic ties to Sangiovese yet shows a radically different profile. The almost impenetrable ruby colour anticipates hearty aromas of blackberry jam intermixed with chocolate, grilled herbs and sweet spices. Racy tannins and a herbal tang keep mouthfilling layers of plummy fruit in check, lingering on the long and slightly tarry finish. Total production is around 2,100 bottles annually.
