Vini Mortilla Nakrì Al Galù

After creating the Seforha Carpe Diem and Solera lines in 2010, in order to make our wines unique in the image, we decided to totally disrupt the production lines and create something unique, driven also by the new production of Cerasuolo di Vittoria classic docg and the Vittoria Nero d 'Avola Doc and Vittoria Frappato Doc, the Nakrì line which is simply our Trinacria (Sicily), an almost Anagramma, an enigma like the verse of the three bottles.

It all started with the simple demand of tourists, what is the Cerasuolo di Vittoria?

The Cerasuolo di Vittoria is nothing but the union, a blend, between Nero d'Avola and Frappato.

Hence the idea of ​​combining with the Cerasuolo di Vittoria, on his right, the Vittoria Nero d'Avola Doc and to his left the Vittoria Frappato Doc.

We asked ourselves the problem: What is the binder of the three bottles graphically?

The answer was given by our Stefania, a design with excellent qualities, after tasting our excellent wines, joke !!! Actually, in order to fully understand the idea, he made a guided wine tasting to find the right solution graphically.

La Danza di Matisse

He made sketches on a female dance of fertility, basically related to the painting "La Danza" by Matisse, but in the feminine harmony something was missing, the nature of the wines itself, especially the Nero d'Avola strong and rebellious soul, strong character . Hence the idea of ​​combining a male dance with the female dance; what to look for? We remembered the cave drawings of the Addaura cave in Palermo.

Disegni rupestri della grotta dell'Addaura

Three women, from "La Danza" by Matisse, different from each other based on the character of the wine they represent, printed in a soft "cotton paper" label, that dance express their femininity with their sinuous bodies , sensual, almost touching each other when they join the three bottles. You stop and admire the beauty and try to touch them, touch the hair, the texture, the hardness of the cave signs of the Addaura cave, which continues on the lines of these women's bodies.

A masterpiece was born 24 months of hard work to create this work of art that takes up a legend that is handed down from generation to generation that tells the birth of Sicily:

The "Three nymphs".

Le tre ninfe di Vini Mortilla

It is said that the three Sicilian promoters (Capo Peloro in the North-East, Capo Passero in the South-East and Capo Lilibeo in the West), are the most extreme points of the island and that give the famous triangular shape were born thanks to three beautiful nymphs.

In classical mythology, nymphs are semi-deities linked to nature that make them fertile thanks to their gifts. The myth tells that these three nymphs went around the world dancing and collecting stones, fruits and small parts of the earth from the most fertile soils.
Arrived in a region with a clear blue sky, the three nymphs began to dance simultaneously throwing into the sea everything they had collected during their journey. So slowly the three promontories were born. At that point the sea enclosed between the three promontories was irradiated by the light of a rainbow and became land, filling the space that separated the headlands.

Here from the waves emerged an island with the shape of an inverted triangle, with a mild climate and fertile land: Sicily or Trinacria.

When we presented the Nakrì project to the first events in the world of wine, telling us about the company's management of the company, they identified us with these three labels, actually the company is run by three women: totally different with different characters but with the purpose of carrying on this company already arrived at the seventh generation.
