“The perfect Sicilian blend”, as Alessandro says, juicy and thirst-quenching, typically Mediterranean with summer strawberries and liquorice roots flavours. The fruit-forward nero d’avola is planted in a valley inland near Santa Ninfa, while the rustic nerello and earthy perricone come from Alcamo, a 10yo massal selection from local old vines. Alessandro insists on the fact that the massal of nerello does not come from the Etna, Alcamo’s nerello is somehow different and better-suited to the area. Grapes were totally destemmed, a week maceration followed by fermentation and ageing in stainless steel.
