Method & Production

Grown following Organic practices. Using the Guyot training method and planted to a density of 0.85 x 2.40. Harvest commences at the mid September when the grapes reach perfect ripeness, all the grapes are carefully selected and handpicked. After de-stemming, there is a maceration period of around a days. Fermentation in stainless steel and then the wine matures in steel vats for 5 months. 

This wine is dedicated to the memory of Mafia victims and to those who actively demonstrate opposition to Sicilian criminal organisations through their work and on a daily basis.

Tasting notes

On the nose this wine has intense notes of red fruits, such as blueberry, rasberry and black cherry with hints of balsamic and spicy notes of black pepper. It is earthy with vibrant acidity, a pleasant soft mouthfeel with well-integrated  tannins and a long finish.

Food matching

A great accompaniment to salami, antipasti and caponata but also primi pasta dishes such as Pasta alle Sarde.
