After a soft pressing, fermentation takes place in contact with skins at controlled-temperature for two weeks, with daily pumping over and fulling. Maceration in steel provides a complete extraction of polyphenolic substances, with a
quick passage in the wood making it a well-balanced wine of strong character.
After racking, part of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barriques for six months and finally blends with the part of the wine aged in steel.
Lively ruby red with brick red shades.
Ideally served with first and main courses of Sicilian tradition. It also pairs with grilled meet and aged cheese.
