Feudo di Santa Tresa - 2018/19
This is the only DOCG in Sicily, and Santa Tresa was one of the very first to produce this wine. Made from 60% Nero d’Avola, of which 15% is lightly dried on the vines, using the Appassimento method, coupled with 40% Frappato. After careful separate varietal vinifications and part oak ageing, it is blended and emerges with a luxurious soft fruit structure. Concentrated, yet elegant with soft morello cherry and caramel notes. A crafted wine of rare quality, from a rare DOCG area.
