WINEMAKING

The oenologists’ work emphasize the agronomic efforts, which are characterised, by the others, by an extreme care in the selection and pruning of the branches and clusters. Accuracy in the control of the temperatures, timing of the fermentation and maceration; a careful selection of the woods to enhance the distinguishing sensory profile of our Nero d’Avola.

SENSORY PROFILE

Deep impenetrable red with purple hints. Very rich to the nose: it starts with mineral notes of stone, sweets notes of plum, ripen ribes and sourcherry follow. Spicy , vegetal aromatic tones and elegant boisè notes show up in the finale. Wide and very warm to the palate. Sweet tannins, good balance and long lingering in the mouth.
