100% Nero d’Avola. It is an average to early varietal maturing around the first week of September.This wine is obtained from grapes that have reached perfect aromatic and polyphenolic maturation. Destemming and alcoholic fermentation with the skins occurs for 6-8 days at 71-75 degrees. Malolactic Fermentation occurs with selected bacteria, then finally maturation occurs for 6 months in French barriques.
Pairs well with Risotto, first courses of baked pasta, redmeats, lamb and savory cheeses. For its pleasant structureand intense aromaticity, the Nero d’Avola pairs ideally withtypical Sicilian dishes, Spaghetti alla Norma, with eggplant,and smoked ricotta cheese.
