Controdanza Noto DOC PLANETA
Awards and honors
Controdanza comes from “country dance”; it is a traditional rural dance whose protagonists move with elegance in a continuous play of contrasts and agreements. This is what we want to represent with Nero d’ Avola joined to a small percentage of Merlot, cultivated in the white lands of Noto. An unconventional union that expresses contrast and harmony. 85% Nero d’ Avola and 15% Merlot. The wine making considers the soft pressing of the grapes and the elimination of stalks. 14 days maceration are followed by alcoholic fermentation at 25°C. The malolactic fermentation is managed in inox, while the aging, that lasts 10 months, is developed in Barriques of 3rd passage made with Allier oak.
