Bonera, located in the heart of Menfi’s surroundings, this is a typical farming area, dedicated to the cultivation of vineyards. The temperatures in summer are above 30 degrees, and the great changes in temperature intensify the properties of the Nero d’avola and Cabernet Franc, giving the wine power and elegance.
Each varietal is harvested separately to ensure optimal ripening. Grapes are destemmed, crushed and the resultant must is rapidly chilled to 39°F on its way to the pneumatic presses. Some portions of the fruit are given skin contact in order to extract flavor and body.
Vibrant slight straw yellow with hints of green. Rich, ripe green apple aromas, with sweet & fruity, gentle overtones of orchard blossoms, macadamia nuts and honey. On the palate, soft and rich, deep fruit, fat on the middle palate and great extract lead to a long, rich, fat round finish, almost viscous.
