The Ginestra vineyards are in the Monreale DOC area and lie at an altitude of between 500 and 900 meters above sea level. The soil is extremely well-suited for the cultivation of Nero d'Avola grapes. A vertical trellis system is used in the vineyards,
which have a density of 5,500 plants per hectare.
The grapes are gathered in trays when they are fully ripe. They are destemmed and chilled, then they are transferred to fermentation vessels and selected yeasts are added. Here primary fermentation takes place for 10 - 15 days at a temperature of 22°C - 24°C. The wine is then racked into French barriques, where the fermentation process is completed. At the end of the barrel ageing process of around ten months, the wine is bottled and left to rest for at least three months.
Characteristics of the wine:
A deep red colour with violet hues, this wine emanates sweet aromas of ripe red fruit. It has intense, persistent flavours rich in cherry notes and is pleasingly tannic at the end. Ageing in barriques completes the structure of the wine, which is refined
and pleasant on the palate.
Excellent with red meat and first courses with sauces that contain game. It can also be enjoyed with fish dishes with rich sauces, such as the flavoursome, slightly spicy soups typical of the Mediterranean.
