Foods

The approachability and impressive depth of flavour of this fruit-driven wine makes it a versatile partner to a wide range of cuisine over the next two to three years.

Oak

Partial maturation in seasoned oak barrels

Colour

Dark blood red with crimson highlights.

Nose

The nose is lifted and expressive with ripe, fruit-driven aromas of dark berries, cherries, herbs, spice and forest undergrowth.

Palate

The palate is rich and ripe with flavours of supple red berries, exotic spice, candied cherries and liquorice framed by soft tannins.

Background

The fruit is hand harvested, usually in early September. Following a total de-stalking, the fruit is given a cold soak and cool maceration. The pressing is traditionally soft before partial maturation in stainless steel and seasoned oak barrels. An excellent vintage in western Sicily with consistent and moderate weather. Rain was slightly lower than average and concentrated in Spring. The were few heat spikes in summer and the autumn was fine with an excellent divergence between minimum and maximum temperatures. A slightly smaller than average yield of well balanced and intensely flavoured fruit was harvested without incident.
