"Calogero Statella has been the oenologist of Tenuta delle Terre Nere since 2008. In 2016 he purchased, together with his wife Rita, a vineyard on Mount Etna located in the Pettinociarelle district (Sollicchiata, commune of Castiglione di Sicilia). Pettinociarelle is a district that was very famous in the past for wine, as the soils (that are poor) gave a low grape yield, but the wines from these grapes were of very high quality. Today the vineyard of Calogero and Rita is one of the few vineyards that are still productive. After the second World War many farmers had to abandon these vineyards as vines were planted in areas that ensured a higher production. Many vineyards were gradually converted into olive groves."
