The Cabernet Sauvignon, Nero d'Avola, Tannat and other varieties for Tancredi grow in vineyards at altitude from 200 to 600 m in South-western Sicily at the Contessa Entellina Estate and nearby areas.
Grapes were harvested fully ripe by hand followed by careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard. A further selection was carried out in the cellar before the fermentation in stainless steel tanks and maceration on the skins for 12 days at a controlled temperature. The wine aged for 14 months in French oak barriques and then in the bottle for at least 30 months. This has given a wine with a fragrant bouquet and evident fruity notes.
Colour: Deep red.
Bouquet: Fragrant bouquet, notes of red fruit and dark berry fruit combined with scents of liquorice and sweet tobacco.
Taste: The tannins are soft and well integrated. An enveloping and persistent finish.
Longevity 5-10 years.
