Nero d'Avola Collezione IGT, Sicile, 2017
Nero d’Avola di Sicilia IGT – Indicazione Geografica Tipica, Famiglia Pasqua
North-western Sicily, in Southern Italy.
Soil Low, rocky hills of limestone and clay.
Red vinification, with thinning of the grapes and maceration on the skins at controlled temperature. Pressing is carried out with the aid of pneumatic presses, that delicately compress the head of the skins, avoiding the discharge of bitter tannins while promoting that of the anthocyianins, so to provide a deeper colour. Once alcoholic fermentation is over, the wine spontaneously carries out malolactic fermentation. After natural clarification, the wine is fined in steel tanks.
Intense ruby red colour with dark purple hues. Elegant hints of berries, spices and liquorice. Full-bodied, persistent, with a velvety and buttery finish on the palate.
Ideal with full-flavoured meat dishes and medium-seasoned cheeses. To be served at 18 °C.
