The estate covers 225 hectares in the district that slopes down from Camporeale towards Alcamo, on rolling hills at 300–600 metres in altitude, on alternating clay and sandy soils.Perfect aspecting and the soil composition make this ideal wine country for growing the finest vines.
On this ancient land, the vineyards dominate the landscape, one after another, sketching out a geometry of rows that the sun and Mediterranean hues transform into golden hills.
Rapitalà is a real name and comes from the Arabic “Rabidh-Allah” – the “river of Allah”, from the stream that flows among the vineyards, and proof that this countryside has been cultivated since ancient times.Over the centuries, generations of farmers mapped out the current form and identity of the estate.
The winery uses the most innovative pressing, refrigeration, winemaking, and bottling techniques.
The temperature-controlled barrel cellar is home to over 600 French oak barriques and 13 oak barrels. Varietal characteristics are respected with great care to give wines maximum personality and excellence.
