Region : Italy (Italy), Sicily (Italy)

Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750 ml

Food Pairing : Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables

Tasting Notes

80% Nero d’Avola and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Part of the Nero d’Avola is picked and then partially dried to concentrate the sugars and flavours as is done to make Amarone or Sforzato. This deep purple red wine shows a very intense bouquet of red berries along with pepper and spices. Full-bodied, very well balanced with ripe tannins and a long finish. Intense and rich with a big finish and lots of power. Pair with grilled meats and other hearty fare.

The Producer

Feudo di Santa Tresa

Feudo di Santa Tresa estate has around 123 acres of vineyards in the historical vine growing region of Vittoria. A careful selection of the clones and rootstocks are planted at a density of approximately 2,025 vines per acre to preserve the typicity of native varietals while realizing the full potential of this unique microclimate.

Lying close to the Mediterranean, Feudo di Santa Tresa’s vineyards benefit from cooling sea breezes. The estate’s soil consists of a layer of light, red, sandy loam (terra rossa) resting on top of a limestone base, which helps retain vital water. In order to preserve this rich terroir, only natural techniques are used to assist cultivation. While the abundant wind and scarce rainfall naturally protect against pests, infestations are further prevented through limited copper and sulfur treatments and “sexual confusion” pheromone traps. In addition, only natural fertilizers are used to avoid introducing chemicals into the topsoil. Undersoil irrigation is utilized to prevent evaporation, thereby maximizing water efficiency.
