Tenute Nicosia - Sosta Tre Santi

This collection of top red wines and classic method sparkling wines, produced in a limited series using only the best grapes from our vineyards, is the highest expression of a passion for winemaking that, for more than one hundred years, has inspired the work of the Nicosia family. Sosta Tre Santi means a stopping place for three saints, is a tribute to Trecastagni, the ancient Etna village where the Nicosia’s winery rises up, and the three saints Alfio, Cirino and Filadelfo who, along their journey towards martyrdom, stopped in the town that devotedly worships them even today.
