General information

Perricone is a rather rare autochthonous variety, widespread in western Sicily. Difficult, surly but (also for this) complex and fascinating. Cultivated in dry conditions, with low yields per hectare, it gives life to great red wines with excellent longevity.

Harvest period: first ten days of October.

Vinification system: soft pressing followed by maceration on the skins for 15 days with inoculation of selected indigenous Sicilian yeasts. Vinification and aging take place in stainless steel silos at a controlled temperature for 10 months. Malolactic fermentation follows

Tasting notes

Visual exam:
The wine is clear, with a ruby red color, and consistent in swirling.

Olfactory test:
Notes of fruit such as cherry, raspberry and marasca cherry to which are added hints of licorice, cocoa, coffee well accompanied by pleasant balsamic notes.

Taste-olfactory examination:
The wine is dry, warm and quite soft but at the same time fresh with marked and graceful tannins and a present sapidity. Persistence is very long.
