The grapes are harvested mid-September. A cold, pre-maceration lasts for three days and is followed by temperature-controlled fermentation at 77°F. The result is a better extraction of aromas and tannins, which are smooth and enveloping. About 20% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation for four months in second passage, medium-toast French Allier barriques. The wine is then blended with the remaining lots and is aged in barriques for 12 months. In this way we produce a fragrant, fresh, fruity wine and maintain unaltered the varietal characteristics and structure and power expressed by the Syrah grown in the hot Sicilian climate.
Intense ruby-red color with damask-violet tints. Generous bouquet with touches of ripe fruit and the typical spices of this grape variety, with attractive hints of vanilla. The flavor is full and delicate, with soft and elegant tannins. A balanced marriage between the depth of this product and the uniqueness of this exceptional terroir.
