Nero d'Avola e Syrah

GRAPES: 75% Nero d’ Avola DOC and 25% Syrah DOC grown on the hills near Partinico between 350 and 450 meters above sea level.

VINIFICATION AND FINING: The grapes are hand picked in 14 kg crates; Syrah around the last decade of August and Nero D’Avola around the last decade of September. The grapes are crushed and destemmed and then fermented at controlled temperature (25°C) in stainless steel tanks with frequent “pumping-over” and “delestages” for 10 days; the wine is then poured in French oak barrels where it ages for 24 months. After bottling, it ages for further time before market release.

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14 – 14,5 % by vol.

WINE DESCRIPTION: Deep blue with violet nuances. The nose reveals notes of cherry, blackberry and
mulberry with a remarkable complexity. On the palate is spicy, luscious, all-embracing and velvety.
Serving temperature 18 °C.
