Descrizione vino

This Nero d'Avola "Duca Enrico" from Duca di Salaparuta sicilian Winery is the flagship wine of the Company, produced on the SuorMarchesa estate in the central southern area of the island: the grape variety used for the production of this wine is 100% Nero d'Avola, the vineyards are located on soils of mixed limestone-siliceous composition located at about 200 m u.s.l and benefit from a climate characterized by mild winters and dry springs/summers. The harvest takes place only after the perfect ripening of the berries, followed by the phases of destemming and maceration at a controlled temperature for about ten days. Maturation takes place in French oak barrels for a minimum of 18 months, a phase necessary to ensure that the wine acquires its own distinctive character. The following further 18 months of bottle aging serve to complete the typical organoleptic bouquet of the product.

 

Characteristics of this Sicilian wine

Upon organoleptic examination this Sicilian wine shows an intense ruby red color; the nose is structured and complex with hints ranging from leather to tobacco up to red fruits. In the mouth it is harmonious, powerful and endowed with a long persistence.
