After 10 years working with Gabrio Bini, Battista Belvisi began bottling wines under his own domaine name in 2016 after what may have been a nasty split between the former colleagues. Regardless, he’s now ventured out on his own in search of producing wines of great balance and character which ring true to their place of origin.

100% catarratto from the wild, windswept plains of Pantelleria. A little tropical in all the right places, underpinned by a current of fleshy, just-pithy citrus character and salty, herbal crunch. An exceptionally clean, pure wine, particularly for the style of winemaking; Lustro was unfined, unfiltered, and bottled without any additions.
