Avulisi is produced with mainly Nero d’Avola grapes, coming from the oldest vines on the estate.
Hand-picked at the end of September.
After a very gentle de-stemming, the single berries are sorted by hand, with only the very best quality grapes being retained. For Avulisi we use 100% “Vinificazione Integrale” which means that the fermentation takes place entirely in 225l barriques. Throughout the fermentation process, the barriques are regularly rotated, so that the aromas and tannins become extremely well integrated. The wine remains on the skins in the barriques for 40-45 days. Avulisi is aged in barriques for at least 12 months.
Incredibly intense in colour, with a bouquet of spices and fruits of the forest. The palate is complex, with elegant tannins, full bodied and refined.
A wonderful accompaniment to mature cheeses and highly flavoured meat or wild mushroom dishes. A wine for contemplation.
