Wine

Nero d’Avola

SICILIA DOC

Area

The districts of Butera and Riesi in the Province of Caltanissetta.

Grapes

100% Nero d’Avola.

Vinification and Maturation

The grapes were harvested in the third week of September. Fermentation lasted 8 days at a temperature of 28°-30°C. (82°-86°F.). The wine matured for 12 months, 50% in 350 liter (92 gallon) tonneaux and 50% in 60 hectoliter (1,320 gallon) oak barrels, followed by a further period of bottle aging.

Colour

A brilliant, fairly deep ruby-red.

Bouquet

Broad and persistent, in which one finds, apart from almond blossom notes, intense spicy hints.

Flavour

Dry, well-structured and extremely rounded, it offers very complex fruit flavors on the palate. These are reminiscent of cherries preserved in brandy, mingled with a very appealing spiciness that lingers on the finish.

Serving Temperature

Serve at around 18°C. (64°F.)

Food Combinations

Delicious with richly-flavored dishes, barbecued meats and fairly mature cheeses.

Alcohol Level

13% vol.
