More info

The vines for the Ammasso red wine grow in the Barone Montalto vineyards in a hilly area near the sea in the province of Trapani in western Sicily. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 350-500 meters above sea level, where the interaction between high daytime temperatures and cool nights gives both maturity and freshness in the grapes. The best grapes were hand-picked and placed in small cases and stored for 4 weeks in a controlled temperature fruit chamber room. The natural enzymatic processes develop the peculiar aromas and taste profile. Grapes were gently handled to preserve their delicate balance.

 The wine rested for 8-10 months in medium toasted oak casks followed by 4 months in the bottle.

Colour: Deep ruby red

Bouquet: Opulent, powerful, but finely balanced.

Taste: Candied notes are wrapped around toasted ones giving the palate fullness and sensuality.

Longevity 10-15 years.
