Controdanza, from “country dance”, is a traditional rural dance where partners move gracefully together and then in opposition to each other. Thus we imagined an association of Nero d’Avola and a small amount of Merlot, both cultivated in Noto’s white soil. An unconventional combination, balanced between harmony and contrast.
Territories & Wineries
Above sea level
5.000 vines per hectare
A memorable harvest for Nero d’Avola. Structure, balance, bright colors and exuberant nose accompanied by high alcohol, all perfectly balanced. We are more than satisfied with both wineries and we expect unique Cerasuolo and Santa Cecilia wines. The reasons for the superior quality can be traced back to the ideally dry and cool September, perfect for Nero d'Avola.
