Contrada G

  • Passopisciaro
  • Sicilia, Italy

Method & Production

Contrada Guardiola is a single vineyard site of 8 hectares planted with 100+ year old Nerello Mascalese vines, at an altitude of 800 meters above sea level. This is the first area purchased by Passopisciaro and where the winery is located. The grapes are carefully selected and hand-harvested at the end of October/early November. The wines undergo a quick fermentation in stainless steel vats, followed by malolactic and 18 months aging in large oak barrels. 

Tasting notes

Rich and juicy with fleshy red fruit and smoky mineral tones. Volcanic DNA, muscular with chunky tannins. Smooth, precise and complex - absolutely delicious!
