Syrah / Nero d’Avola
DOC • Sicilia
Organic Wine

Both grapes come from the area of Salemi, located at an altitude of about 150 meters above sea level. The terrain, which is hilly, has a clayey structure, rich in organic substances.

Grape Harvesting
The Syrah is harvested in early September, whereas the Nero d’Avola in late September. The grapes are harvested by hand when they have fully matured, in the coolest hours of the day.

The grapes are processed separately. They are placed in steel tanks and macerated for about 12-14 days at a temperature of about 20°C. After the natural malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in French oak and American oak barriques and barrels (capacity 2500 liters) for about 10 months, after which the wine undergoes a lengthy maturation process in the bottles.

Organoleptic properties
Intense ruby red in colour, with captivating purple hues, it has a full-bodied, persistent scent with hints of ripe berries, spices and airy notes of vanilla. It sweeps over the palate, complex, full, balanced and enveloping. Soft and elegant tannins.
