Violets, Morello cherries and spices
A well balanced and full bodied wine with a smooth palate of red fruits and plumy flavors with a nice tannic structure.
The vineyards are located in central Sicily, in the province of Caltanissetta, at about 500metres 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 takes place for 15 days at 24-26°C in stainless steel tanks.
Dark ruby with shades of purple
To be enjoyed at its best with a nice steak or a rich lasagna
