Very deep red violet colour with purple edges. The nose is elegant and savoury Nero d’Avola with richness and sweetness from fermentation in new barriques. The palate is intense and concentrated with pungent fruit with palate length gained from oak sweetness and depth from high quality Nero d’Avola. The palate persists with richness and sweetness with dark cherry and assertive tannins at the end.
The Campofiorito estate is in the Corleone district and is the family’s pride and joy. It lies at altitudes ranging between 600 m and 1200 m above sea level. The red varieties grown there are Nero d'Avola and Syrah.
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 to French barriques and tonneaux, where the malolactic fermentation process is completed. At the end of the barrel ageing process of around eighteen months, the wine is bottled and left to rest for at least six months.
Characteristics of the wine:
This wine comes from sun-kissed Sicilian vineyards lying 651 m above sea level. A deep red-purple colour, it offers cherry aromas and lingering vanilla notes bestowed upon it by ageing in barriques. It is a good wine to lay down.
Excellent with mature cheeses and game. It perfectly complements wild boar.
