Santa Tresa Nìvuro Nero d’Avola-Perricone Terre Siciliane IGP

 
Nivuro

Grape variety

A carefully selected blend of Nero d’Avola and Perricone.

Where is this wine made?

At Feudo di Santa Tresa, an historic estate close to Vittoria (Sicily).

About this wine

Both Perricone and Nero d’Avola are meticulously harvested by hand when perfectly ripe, towards the end of September.

Both grapes are put into oak barriques for about 6 months, with weekly batonnage. After this period, we taste all the single lots of the two varieties to decide the best blend for Santa Tresa Nivuro.

Tasting notes

Deep, opaque purple/red/violet color with an incredibly intense nose. A rich combination of black and red fruits, with black pepper and spices. Elegant rich and luscious on the palate, with huge bursts of warm dark berry fruit; the finish is mineral and savoury. Nìvuro has excellent balance, it is fruity and fresh with a surprisingly soft, long finish.
