The Region

Faro DOC is a wine appellation located in the province of Messina, in the northeastern part of Sicily, Italy. It is one of the lesser-known and smaller wine regions in Sicily. It is known for producing unique and distinctive red wines. The vineyards are located on the slopes of hills overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

The unique terroir of the Faro region, characterized by volcanic soils, sea breezes, and a Mediterranean climate, contributes to the distinctiveness of the wines. The proximity to the sea and the volcanic soils impart minerality and freshness to the wines.


This sweet wine is made from 100% indigenous Zibibbo grapes which are dried after being manually harvested at the end of September. The must is gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Aging takes place in a mixture of stainless and wooden barrels (depending on the vintage conditions.) 

Ideal serving temperature –  8°C.
