Health Benefits of Sicilian Wines

Only Sicilian Wines contain Piceatannolo

Recent studies done by Prof. Gebbia, head of the oncology department at the University of Palermo, found a molecule called Piceatannolo used in medicine to cure cancer. 

The study was done because the cancer incidence in Sicily is less than in the rest of Italy, that is due to the abundance of antioxidants in wine, extra virgin olive oil, blood oranges and the overall healthy eating.
