|Wine maker notes
|100% Pinot Noir. It is a variety that is precocious, maturing around the end of August or beginning of September.
Collected from the grapes that have achieved perfect, aromatic, and polyphenolic maturation, they are de-stemmed and cooled for compressing and maceration at 54 degrees for 2 days. The successive alcoholic fermentation takes place for 7 days at 77 degrees. A small portion of the wine is matured in French oak barriques for 6-7 months.
|Accompanies savory first courses like pasta with meat sauce, second courses with red meats, medium-spiced roasts, and semi-matured cheeses.
|Rich, harmonious and full of character. They are reminiscent of the splendid features of our vineyards: the sun, the sea, nature and its generous soils. Wines which combine tradition and modernity, dedicated to those who want to rediscover tastes true to Sicily.
