Nero d'Avola Terre Siciliane IGP

Deep, purple red with an incredibly intense nose featuring black pepper and spices. The palate offers layers and layers of fruit with bursts of dark berries, offering excellent balance and complexity, with a soft, long finish.

Grapes: 100% Nero d’Avola.
Vineyard area: Belice area in the western part of Sicily.

Harvest: the grapes are hand-picked in late September/early October.

Vinification: Nero d’Avola grapes are transported in small containers so that they are not crushed by their own weight, and are very softly destemmed in order to keep the skins intact. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature between 22-24°C, with a pumping over of the must in order to achieve the best extraction of colour, soft tannins and aromas from the skins.
