Production Area: Sambuca di Sicilia (Agrigento). Selection of the best organic grapes, with low yeald per ha. After a very long fermentation with skin contact to extract colour, body and aromas, the wine is pressed; 50% of the it is aged in barriques e 50% in concrete tanks for about 6 months, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation. The wine is then bottled to preserve the fruit flavours.
Deep ruby; the bouquet is full of red and dark fruits, spicy and balsamic (eucalyptus) hints, notes of oak; full body wine with very long aftertaste; it is ready to drink now but it has a shelf life of 8 years. Best served with: It matches perfectly well with medium aged cheese, red meat, game
This is a thick, chalky tannic release, packed with dark cherry, new leather, dried herbs and roses, plus a bit of spice. Feels kind of raw almond-like in texture and firm, black and red fruit flavoured, savoury, chunky, but still pretty fresh. Quite like the slightly rugged and raw feel here, and the wine is a good hearty drink. Tasted: July 2020; Alcohol: 13%; Price: $22; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2022+; Rated: 91 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
