Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
Classical red vinification. The delicately de-stemmed grapes are macerated for 4-6 days so as to allow optimum extraction of the colouring, tannic and aromatic part from the grape skins. At this stage alcoholic fermentation begins at controlled temperature of 82 F. The vinification process continues with the drawing off and pressing of the crushed grapes. Once the alcoholic fermentation is over, we proceed with the malolactic fermentation.
Its round character makes it a great accompaniment to aged or blue cheese, mushrooms, berries and red fruit sauces.
How to Serve
Serve at 64.4° F in clear, transparent crystal goblets.
The bottle should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark cellar.
Sicily is Italy's southernmost region, and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. For more than 2500 years Sicily (Sicilia in Italian) has been a significant center of Mediterranean viniculture. Blessed with consistently bright sunshine and reliably moderate rainfall, Sicily's classic Mediterranean climate is ideally suited to the production of excellent wine grapes. The magic is in the fertile soil and Sicily's long, cloudless summers – with humidity but virtually no rain from June until harvesting in late August – two factors which make Sicilian vintages remarkably consistent from year to year.
