Grape: Nero d'Avola
Each year, Arianna uses the same few rows of Nero d'Avola in hdr Fosso di Lupo vineyard for perfect, healthy Nero d'Avola clusters to sun-dry for 15 days for her passito-style wine. The organically farmed, hand-harvested fruit is then destemmed, crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts, with a week-long skin maceration. The wine is aged in a 750-liter tonneau for 16 months before being bottled unfiltered, and held for 6 more months before release. Extremely limited production. 500ml bottle.
Concentrated dark ruby red color with aromas of red fruit jam, licorice and chocolate. This wine is sweet with a finely balanced acidity that keeps it alive through the very persistent finish.
