Rosa Nera

A Wine inspired by the traditional "pista e mbutta", that means, crush and put in barrels, an ancient technique of the territory to produce the rosé from Nero d'Avola grapes, from which it takes its name. Assembly of small parcels of "Alberello impupato" freestanding bush, both old and young vines, grown on the chromaticity of different terrains. Rich rosé, with intense and fragrant tones in taste. The grapes are harvested when completely mature, to give a character and density of an almost red wine. Direct pressing and vinification only of the flower must in steel tanks, where it matures until the following spring with continuous Bâtonnage, carried out according to the lunar phases.
