Description: The Terre della Baronia is a unique terroir with its 9 areas and related sub-areas. The portions of the vineyard in the Munti area where these clonal selections of Nero d'Avola were planted were chosen precisely because they are richer in organic substance and structure, thanks to the clayey profile the expression of the territory is enhanced, giving a particular gustatory richness and olfactory.
WORK IN THE CELLAR
The oenological approach is based on the enhancement of agronomic work, which is characterized in particular by careful green management and thinning of the bunches. Great attention to maceration times and temperatures. Careful selection of woods to elegantly bring out the sensory profile so peculiar to our Nero d'Avola.
