Back

Miopasso Nero d'Avola Appassimento Sicilia DOC

The bouquet is very intense, with deep notes of dark cherries, damsons and blackcurrants. The palate is powerful, yet approachable, with silky smooth tannins, great depth of flavour and layers of complexity.
Match with rich meat-based pasta sauces, red meats and mature hard cheeses.

Grapes: The Nero d’Avola grapes are very carefully hand picked and then let to dry while they reach perfect conditions.
Vineyard area: We select our grapes from Belice and Agrigento on Sicily’s west coast, which are two of the island’s key areas for growing Nero d’Avola.

Harvest: In mid-September we do a careful selection of the best Nero d’Avola grapes

Vinification: We are careful to use the most gentle vinification process possible. After the de-stemming, the grapes are pressed extremely softly.
During the early stages of fermentation, very frequent pumping over is done and as soon as fermentation is complete, Malolactic takes place.
