Terre Siciliane IGT
Vineyards at 100 meters above sea level in Contrada Donza d’Oro in the Comune of Marsala. East/West exposure with sunlight all day. Loamy-clay soil. Average age of vines are 20 years.
The grapes are carefully selected and hand picked at harvest during the cooler hours of the day. After de-stemming, maceration takes place at a controlled temperature, followed by alcoholic fermentation (18/25 days), before racking. The wine refines in stainless steel and 3 months in large oak cherry barrels before bottling.
It pairs well with red meat, game and flavorful first courses.
Serve at 60-65˚F.
