89 Points,Ultimate Wine Challenge: "Cherries, hints of cinnamon and black pepper lead the aromas of this rich Sicilian wine. Well balanced and refreshing, with a lingering dry finish and great character. The perfect wine for pasta with tomato sauce, grilled meats and roast chicken."
Situated in the southeastern part of the Province of Caltanissetta, within the DOC district of Riesi, Sicily. The estate is about two hours from Sicily's regional capital, Palermo. The property has 334 acres dedicated to vineyards, as well as 3,000 olive trees.
The grapes are harvested in the third week of September. The fermentation occurs for eight days. The wine matures for 12 months, 50% in tonneaux and 50% in 1,320 gallon oak barrels, followed by final aging in the bottle. Bright ruby-red.
The nose shows brandied cherry, rich plum and orange zest with notes of cherry blossom, cured meat and exotic spices. The palate is medium-bodied revealing mouthwatering red fruit, wild mushrooms and espresso that lead to substantial and polished tannins. Beautiful graphite minerals linger on the long finish.
We only have 25 boxes of this wine, and when it's gone, it's gone!
