  • Capo Milazzo gave us a perfect harvest; a dry summer and then some rain to help ripening, very healthy grapes and splendid wines, with violet-toned colours which, personally, I have never seen before.
  • At Capo Milazzo the conditions were very different; as frequently happens the north-east of Sicily has a climate which can differ in significant ways from the rest of the island. Here there was an exceptionally wet November, followed by a fairly dry winter. In March, with the beginning of spring, there were above average temperatures and abundant rainfall followed by a summer which was very cool here as well. Nero d’Avola and Nocera produced less than normal, in the first case due to imperfect setting, and in the second for other reasons. But the cool summer helped the ripening and the quality in this territory, for us still a subject of study, fully satisfied us.

vinificazione

Vinification

the grapes are gathered by hand into 14kg crates and as soon as they arrive at the winery pass to the sorting table for selection, then for destalking. They ferment in stainless steel and remain on the skins for 7 days at 25˚C with continual mixing throughout. Racking with soft pressing follows, and the wine thus obtained carries out its malolactic fermentation in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes
  • Eyes Eyes
  • Nose Nose
  • Mouth Mouth
Deep and intense ruby red reflections.
On the nose the wine is original and different from others; white pepper, geranium and summer fruits, plums and ripe Noto figs.
On the palate it is soft and persuasive, the typical style of this ancient Sicilian grape variety and definitely to be experienced.
