The vines for the Sciaranèra grow in the vulcanic soil on the Duca di Salaparuta Vajasindi estate on the northern slopes of Mount Etna on the right of the Alcantara valley at an altitude of 600 to 800 meters.
The Pinot Noir grapes were harvested at perfect ripening followed by the vinification. First cold pre-maceration and subsequent traditional maceration for 6-8 days. The wine was matured for about 6 months in barriques of fine French oak, and after bottling refinement for 6 months in the bottles at controlled temperature.
Color: Ruby red with light garnet reflections.
Bouquet: Notes of red fruits like blackberry, almost in juniper - floral feelings in harmony with announced spicy notes (also white pepper).
Taste: Roundness and softness with a delicious taste of tannins. Mineral notes rise. Elegantly velvety, it is a wine of great refinement. Good persistence.
Longevita 5-10 years.
