Description:

Terre della Baronia : a unique terroir with 9 different areas and sub areas. These clonal selections of Nero d’Avola were planted  in the portions of vineyard in the areal Munti. The location was chosen because is richer in organig matter and structure, thanks to the strong clay profile we emphasize the expression of the terroir, giving life to wines able to show a special richness of taste and perfumes.

WINEMAKING

The oenologists’ work completes the agronomic chioices, which are characterised by an extreme care in the selection and pruning of the vines and bunches. Accuracy in the control of the temperatures, timing of the fermentation and maceration; a careful selection of the oaks to enhance the peculiar sensory profile of our Nero d’Avola.

SENSORY PROFILE

Deep impenetrable red color. Very rich to the nose with sweet hints reminiscent of mulberry blackberry and black cherry. Sweet spices reminiscent of licorice, incense and cocoa beans. Structured and vigorous to the palate but at the same time elegant with a fragrant character and an excellent persistence.
