Don Totò

This prestigious, full-bodied wine is made from 100% Nero d’Avola grapes from old vines, with temperature controlled fermentation on the skins for 8 – 10 days to extract the ultimate color and fruit from the grapes.  The wine is traditionally vinified with initial aging in stainless steel tanks for two years, further aging in French oak casks for 6 months, and an additional 12 months in the bottle before being released.  The Baron La Lumia, Don Totò’s great-grandson, decided to dedicate his most full bodied wine to Don Totò, the founder of the noble house of La Lumia and the first person in Licata, Sicily to bottle his wines, also the first winery to bottle this varietal.  The color is a rich, deep ruby red with aromas of plum and blackberries and rustic notes of spice, wood, and leather.  The taste is rich, with intense fruit, balanced tannins and a long lingering finish.  This wine is perfect served with strong flavored foods, game and roasted meats.  Decanting is recommended before serving in order to enjoy the full benefits of this wine.   Can be cellared for over 10 years.
