Description

The vineyards are situated in the surroundings of Mazara del Vallo, past the gravel bank of the river. This testifies to the presence of the typical water-rounded stones called “Cuti”. Thus, the name of this wine is derived from the originality of its soil which makes it both unique and special. Complex and intense. Mature red fruits like currant and prune merged perfectly with herbs and scents of cocoa. It’s spicy, silky and persistent.


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
Rich and powerful wine that goes well with elaborate dishes such as baked-pasta, grilled game or beef.
