Between 730 m and 750 m a.s.l., Donnafugata can count on about 21 hectares of vineyards, all in the Doc area, divided into 6 districts: Montelaguardia, Statella, Camporè and Calderara in the municipality of Randazzo, Marchesa and Verzella in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia. The cultivated varieties are the autochthonous representative of the territory: Carricante, Nerello Mascalese and in small quantities Nerello Cappuccio.
With its eruptions, Etna produces sciare, accumulations of lava, which through long physicochemical processes give life to the sandy, and therefore arable, soils of the slopes of the volcano. In particular, each lava flow, which took place in different historical periods, determines a specific composition of the land: this is the imprint that makes the wine of a micro-territory unique. In particular, the Montelaguardia lava flow, where the Fragore cru is produced, dates back to 1614-1624.
