Torreforte Nero d'Avola

This wine is made from 100% Nero d’Avola grapes, hand-harvested in September from vines over 20 years old, grown at 80 meters above sea level. The grapes are cold pressed and fermented under controlled temperature for 12-14 days, after which the wine is aged in 150hl stainless steel vats.  Three years after the harvest, the wine is finally bottled.  It has a beautiful red color tending to granite, aromatically rich with scents of spices, violets and leather.  The taste is prestigous and pleasant, full of nuances of fruit and spice with balanced tannins.  Pairs well with roasted and braised meats and aromatic cheeses
