Nikao


This wine is made from 100% Nero d’Avola grapes, hand-harvested in the middle of September having left the grapes to over ripen on the vine for about 10 days. The grapes are air dried on gratings and turned every two days to improve the “raisining” quality. Fermentation is done in stainless steel for 3-4 months and then refined in the bottle for an additional 6 months. This is a beautiful, full-bodied dessert wine with a rich jammy scent of dried figs, maraschino cherries and chocolate.  It pairs well with sweet pastries, aged cheeses and chocolate fondue.
