Rosso di Contrada
Don Paolo

Wine linked to family affections, obtained from a plot of just over half a hectare, exposed to the East, at 77mt above sea level, clayey yellow soil, cultivated with bilateral cordon. From this vineyard, we produce one of the most spicy Nero d'Avola, very horizontal, rich and full, with a more contained freshness, which leaves room for a more marked tannin. It ferments in steel tanks for fifteen days, matures in the tank until the following spring, and followed by a long bottle aging.
