“… this I promise you,
no twine will keep the sap from flowing
no one will turn up the soil:
This I promise you, as you look down on us,
through a magnifying glass”
Elisa Biagini, “L’ospite”
“Etna, that wicked witch, resting her
thick white snow under heaven, and slowly,
slowly rolling her orange-coloured smoke.
They called her the Pillar of Heaven, the Greeks”.
D. H. Lawrence, "Sea and Sardinia"
Tenuta di Fessina is an emotional project,
stemming from the love
of this land rich in contrasts.
“Wine is like poetry:
the more you learn about the poet’s life,
his works, his temper and grow familiar with
his upbringing, training and world,
the more you enjoy and understand it.”.
Mario Soldati, “Vino al vino”
At first glance, Tenuta di Fessina may look like a golden fruit
garden or a small whispering wood of bright green tree crowns
ruffled by the nourishing wind blowing from the Mountain of Fire.
