Tasting Notes

"The name Siccari comes from the Sicilian dialect for “seccare” , which translates as “to dry” in the context of foods, something that is very much a part of Sicilian culture. We chose this name as an indicator of the style, since a proportion of the grapes are sun-dried before vinification. Creating a red wine using appassimento brings a whole new dimension to a wine - Siccari has a rich and complex structure, with very soft berryish fruits and a touch of spice. Incredibly characterful, it has layer upon layer of intense and diverse fruit flavours and a very long finish."

The Producer

Purato

Purato celebrates the regions unique micorclimate and extensive winemaking history. Lying close to the Mediterranean, Purato’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 pest, 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. Subterranean irrigation is utilized to prevent evaporation, thereby maximizing water efficiency.
