Descriptions: Twenty- to 30-year-old vines are planted to south-facing vineyards 80 meters above sea level in volcanic soil with white sand and chalk deposits. The fruit is handpicked and the skins are gently broken. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks and lined vats with regular punching down. A first blending of lots takes place when the wine is placed in barrique; a second at the first racking. The wines are then bottled with minimum intervention.
Tasting Notes: This Nero d'Avola opens with aromas of ripe dark berry, mocha and cedar. The ripe palate offers blackberry jam, clove and cooking spice alongside close-grained tannins that give it a firm finish.
