Description

For decades the Perricone, or the so-called Pignatello, had been the undisputed leader of the red grapes in western Sicily. A careful vinification has transformed the prickly character into an incomparable personality: a one of a kind wine. Rich with red fruits, mixed with notes of liquorice, a typical expression of the relationship between the variety and its land. Wine of great power and harmony while expressing, at the same time, a fresh and lively character.

Vinification

Careful selection of handpicked grapes. Maceration and fermentation of the destemmed grapes in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 25°C for 15-20 days. Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

Food Match

Charcuterie and other salty antipasti, eggplant parmigiana, veggie pies and cheeses
