Terre della Baronia Rosso

Grapes: Nero d'Avola and Perricone

Style: Full-bodied, dry, red

Terre della Baronia is a 5 square kilometer area in the Milazzo vineyards about 400 metres above sea level. It has a unique and characteristic mixture of soils. In some areas, the clay is dark with a high organic content while elsewhere the soil is quite chalky. The vine growers say the clay has constant fertility while the chalky areas ensure rich and complex aromas. Vines have been chosen to optimally harness these unique soil types resulting in very aromatic grapes.  Nero d’Avola is here combined with Perricone.  The latter is grown widely in Sicily and may be combined, as in this case, with other red Italian grape varieties. The resulting wines are often deeply colored, full-bodied and high in alcohol.  After cold soaking for 24-48 hours, the fermentation takes place over about 3 weeks with daily pumping over to extract colour and aromas. The wine then rests for 12 months partly in stainless steel and partly in oak, finally maturing in bottle.  Dark red in color, there are aromas of blackberry, black cherry and licorice.  It is full-bodied and fruity and has an excellent finish. Enjoy with beef, venison, duck and goose and, of course, cheese.
