Terroir and winemaking

3 Carati wine is produced with Nero d'Avola grapes of Terre Siciliane IGT. This grape grows in one of the most suitable viticulture area of the ibleo upland, to an altitude of 220 meters, in Bastonaca and Mortilla area, in Ragusa province. Here there is a sandy clay loam and the training system used for Nero d'Avola grape is espalier. After an accurate selection of the bunches, there are winemaking and fermentation phases; after, the wine is ready for ripening in stainless and barriques. The refinement is in horizontally bottles for 6 months with a controlled temperature.

Tasting notes

To the palete this wine is soft and flavourful, elegant and strong, with an accentuated savour and an intense final freshness of mint balsamic notes.
