What does it mean Xisto? Xisto is shale a fine-grained, clastic sedimentary rock composed of mud that is a mix of flakes of clay minerals and tiny fragments (silt-sized particles) of other minerals, especially quartz and calcite. Shale is one of the most abundant stones in our region, so we decided to baptize our wine in honor of this magnificent stone so abundant in our vineyards.
