In one of the most charming places in Eastern Sicily, the fertile Valley of Noto south of Siracusa, lies the Eloro DOC zone, one of the best suited for cultivation of the Nero d’Avola and Moscato di Noto grapes. Here lie the Le Mandrie and Gaudioso estates, which have been owned by the family of Baron Sergio for generations. A historical family estate that has been turned into a modern winery under the management of Baron Giovanni Sergio. The ancient outbuildings have been renovated and reorganised to house modern winemaking facilities. By employing modern technology and ancient knowledge it recovers the elegance of its native vine: Nero d’Avola.
The Nero d’Avola vines for the Sùli red wine grow in Barone Sergio‘s vineyards in the Valley of Noto at an altitude of 70 m. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted and destalked followed by fermentation on the skins in stainless steel tanks. The wine was matured for 6-7 months in steel tanks followed by 2 months in the bottles.
Longevity 3-5 years.
