Nero d`Avola IGT Terre Siciliane "Siccagno"

2018
Italy
Sicily

100% Nero d’Avola. Two parcels on white limestone soils go into Siccagno (local dialect for "good wine"), one being bush-trained, the other in double Guyot. The vines average 35 years old, are organically farmed and harvested by hand, generally in the first 10 days of October. The fruit is destemmed but the berries left whole; it is fermented with native yeasts and 20-25 days of maceration.The wine is aged for 2 years in 3000-liter Stockinger oak botti before being bottled unfiltered.

"A fragrant and graceful nero d'avola with so much lively red-cherry and plum fruit, together with so many spicy nuances. The tannins are so beautifully integrated that the palate feels lacy and almost transparent. Only right at the finish does it turn pleasantly dry. Drink or hold."
