IGP Terre Siciliane
Intense ruby coloured wine with notes of cherries, plums spices and vanilla. Smooth and round on the palate it has a nice juicy finish.
Nero d’Avola grapes grow in Central Sicily in the Caltanissetta district at approx 500m a s.l.. Medium texture limestone and clay soil and a perfect temperature range, ensure great conditions during all the ripening phases. Vines are planted facing South using the trellis system, guyot pruning.
A very unusual year. After a perfect spring with the right amount of rain and great sunny days until the end of July, we had 3 weeks of very intense heat that anticipated the development of the ripening process.
Hand-picked on September 15th, de-stemming and skin maceration for 12 days, before fermentation takes place at 24°C in stainless-steel tanks during 15 days. Part of the wine is aged for at least 6 months in used Oak barrels of 250 liters.
