Maria Costanza Riserva

Grapes: Nero d'Avola

Style: Full-bodied, dry

We are again offering the Riserva of the red Maria Costanza. Also made from 100% Nero d’Avola, the grapes for this wine are selected from one select part of the vineyard from which the original flagship cuvée of Maria Costanza Rosso seen above was made. This particular area has specific soil and climatic characteristics and the clone from which it is made also has its own peculiarities. The vines are thinned to reduce the number of grape bunches which enhances the aromatic and phenolic range of the fruit.  Harvested in mid-October, it has a long maceration period resting on the skins for about thirty days and spends 24 months in oak. Deep red in colour, it has aromas of blueberry, blackcurrant and chocolate. It is full, fruity and intense on the palate with a fine tannic structure and an excellent finish.  Red or white meat, pasta or cheese will all be well accompanied by this wonderful wine.  Still has plenty of staying power and will keep for another decade.
