Type: Red - Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC

Alcoholic content: 12,5-13,5% alc/vol.

Grapes: Nero d'Avola. Trained in counter-espalier and pruned in the spurred cordon system; average density, 5,000 vines per hectare (2,024 an acre) and production of about 7.5 tons per hectare (3.0 tons an acre).

Vinification: Nero d'Avola is picked in September. The grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks with maceration of the skins for about 8 days at a temperature of 24-26°C (75-79°F). After malolactic fermentation, the wine fines for about 2 months in tanks and then for almost 3 months in the bottle.

Description:Ruby red in colour, with light violet hues. On the nose, this wine gives off a fragrance of red fruits, red and black cherries and prunes. Upon tasting, it has a fruity flavour with a pleasant spicy finale. Suited to those who do not like ‘muscly’ reds, it has a caressing, persuasive structure. Fruity wine, best enjoyed slightly chilled.

Food & Wine:The perfect accompaniment to pasta with tomato sauce, grilled fish, various kinds of cold meats and salami and mild cheeses, it is also worth trying with pizza.

Two dishes: Pasta alla Norma (tomato sauce, fried aubergines and grated mature cheese). Eggplant soufflé

Serve: In goblets of medium size; the bottle can be opened at the moment the wine is to be served; Excellent at 14°C (57° F)

Curiosity: Sherazade, fascinating woman protagonist of the Thousand and One Nights has a fruity flesh voice, wrap in a spicy drape, that tells you the fairy tale of this oriental masterpiece. An intensely Mediterranean label in lush Donnafugata style that gives you an unforgettable tasting. First vintage: 2006.
