Nero d’Avola DOC
100% Nero d'Avola
The grapes are harvested in the third week of September. Fermentation lasts eight days, and the must is kept between 82° and 86°F. The wine matures for twelve months – half is place in 92-gallon tonneaux and the other half in 1,320-gallon oak barrels. The win undergoes a final aging process in the bottle.
Bright ruby red
Ample and persistent; shows intense fruity notes of plum, cherries, and spicy hints
Dry and medium-bodied, revealing mouthwatering red fruit; hints of wild mushrooms and espresso lead to substantial and polished tannins; beautiful graphite minerals linger on the long finish
Pairs beautifully with aged pecorino cheese and barbecued meats
