GRANDUCA NERO D’AVOLA
From the red grape variety sovereign of the sicilian lands, from grapes selected with care and devotion, Granduca Nero d’Avola was born, a wine with a strong personality, able to combine history, tradition and sensations of a rugged and generous land, full of strength and vitality.
The grapes are picked by hand in the second half of september; in the cellar their vinification begins with a long maceration on the skins and an equally long fermentation in steel at a controlled temperature.
At the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine is put on french oak barrels where it will spend a long period of refinement that will end with bottling and mellowing in glass for another two years. The commitment of winemakers is repaid year after year, by the result of their work: a wine with a remarkable evolutionary capacity that continues to receive recognitions and appreciations by consumers from all over the world.
The colour is intense ruby red; it expresses at the nose an elegant complex of aromas of black currant and blueberries, notes of licorice and tobacco tones. The taste is powerful, consistent, with a slight acidity and an always protagonist tannin.
It goes perfectly with very spicy second courses, marinated and smoked meats, excellent with a good curry chicken, to try with chilli pepper chocolate.
It can mature for several years at a temperature of 10 C° without light.
