Nìvuro Nero d’Avola Perricone Terre Siciliane IGP

Deep, opaque purple/red with an incredibly intense nose featuring black pepper and spices. Powerful on the palate with huge bursts of warm dark berry fruit, Nívuro has excellent balance, with a surprisingly soft, long finish.

Grapes: a carefully selected blend of Nero d'Avola and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Harvest: all grapes are meticulously harvested by hand when perfectly ripe: the Cabernet Sauvignon in mid-September and the Nero d'Avola towards the end of September.

Vinification: the grapes, transported in small containers so that they are not crushed by their own weight, are very softly destemmed in order to keep the skins as intact as possible. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of between 24-26°C, with frequent remontages and delestages to achieve the best extraction of colour, soft tannins and aromas from the skins. When the maceration is complete, the wine is separated from the skins. Nìvuro is then put into oak barriques, where malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine remains for a further year.
