Sicily Region - Valle del Belice
Medium soil with predominantly calcareous clay with iron. Mediterranean climate.
Grapes sourced entirely from organically accredited vineyards . Maceration for 12-15 days at 26 °C with daily pumping over. After racking the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for about four months before being bottled.
This wine has a ruby red color with violet highlights. The nose is filled with dark fruit jam, prunes, licorice, blackberries, and vanilla. Excellent balance of acidity and sweet flavors, creating a solid structure and persistent finish.
Perfect with pesto pasta, grilled meats, and pecorino cheese. Serve between 16-18° C / 60-64°F. Fine for serving shortly after opening.
