Intense ruby coloured wine with notes of cherries, plums spices and vanilla. Smooth and round on the palate it has a nice juicy finish.
Our Nero d’Avola grows in Western Sicily in the Trapani district, at approx 170 m a.s.l.. The medium texture limestone soil and the perfect micro climate ensure perfect conditions for the ripening phases and for enhancing the concentration characteristics of the varietal. Vines are planted facing South using the trellis system, guyot pruning.
Due to a cold wet spring and the low temperatures during the beginning of summer, harvest has started almost 10 days later than usual, and has been down compared to recent years. On the other hand, quality has been exceptional, the plants were able to accumulate aromatic substances giving fragrant wines with rich and fruity aromas.
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.
