Alagna Nero d’Avola 2013



Winery :Alagna - Baglio Baiata

This winery came into being in the first half of the 20th century thanks to the hard work of its founder, Giuseppe Alagna, the first local person to recognise the potential of the wine market who used his farming and entrepreneurial expertise to launch his own winery. Today, it is Ercole Alagna who is carrying on the family traditions and continuing to innovate in an exemplary fashion.

Location :Marsala - Trapani - Sicily

Name :I.G.P. Sicilia Nero d’Avola

Grapes :100% Nero d'Avola

Alcohol :13 % Vol.

Vinification :Great respect for the vines and very carefully picked grapes and are the starting point for this wine, with vinification taking place in steel vats – no wood barrels are used at all. After fermentation, the wine is left in the bottle for a year before being placed on the market, so all wine sold one year belongs to the previous year’s harvest.

Tasting Notes :Ruby red with purple reflections, the blackcurrant and strawberry bouquet is immediately perceivable, followed by notes of white pepper and liquorice. It is dry and soft to the palate with a long and complex finish.
