Powerful notes of violets, black cherries, vanilla and spices
Full bodied wine with intense red fruit and plumy flavors with a smooth finish.
The vineyards are located in central Sicily, in the province of Caltanissetta at about 500 meters above sea level. The altitude, together with the distance from the sea, provides for excellent diurnal variety where the warm Sicilian sun is alternated with fresh, cool evenings, ensuring great condition for ripening the grapes. The vines are planted south facing following the vertical trellis system on sandy and clay rich soil using guyot pruning.
Before picking date, half of the grapes are cut off and left on the plant to dry under the warm Sicilian sun. The parcel is then harvested. After de-stemming and maceration of the skins for about 12 days, fermentation occurs for 15 days at a temperature of 24-26° C. in stainless steel tanks.
Part of the wine spends about 6 months in Gamba Oak barrels of 250 liters.
