Sicily's wine & oil the TREASURE of grotte

TASTING NOTES

Dark red colour, with shiny violet flashes. Blackberry and cherry

aromas stand out, then geranium leaf, salty notes and towards

the end vanilla, liquorice and tobacco. Mainly fruity in the mouth

with a gentle dry, outstanding freshness and a good persistence.

Ideal with meat and legumes soups with a medium fruity olive

oil. To try also with well-seasoned tasty fish dishes. Pour into a

wide crystal glass. Serve at 16-18°C.

CLIMATE

Intense rain and mild temperatures during the winter months,

warm at the beginning of the spring, with a few days of sirocco,

then rainy and cool in April. From May to September, the

temperature was below the season average. The mild

temperature favoured the growth of the plant and a good

maturity of the grapes.

VINIFICATION

The harvest takes place during the first half of September. The

vines grow in medium mixed clayey and calcareous soils at

450/500 metres above sea level. The vinification of the grapes is

in stainless steel with 15 days of skin contact at a controlled

temperature of 25-28 °c (77-82.4 °F). The malolactic

fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks. Alcohol 14.5%

Vol.
