2012 Al Cantara La Fata Galanti Nerello Cappuccio image

Nerello Cappuccio is the grape variety of this wine; traditionally this variety is blended together with the Nerello Mascalese to enrich the colour of the DOC ETNA, but in this version of single variety it expresses its full potential.?The vineyard is located in the north of the volcano at an altitude of 650 meters above sea level. The volcanic soil is rich in minerals and structure.?The vines were planted in 2006/2007 and are cultivated in espalier with a density of 6,000 vines per hectare.



The grapes are harvested by hand in baskets, afterwards crushed, de-stemmed and collected in stainless steel tanks where after a short cold maceration the alcoholic fermentation takes place together with the marc at a temperature of 24-26 º C, ensuring that it is kept wet and making repeated fullings. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation, approximately 9 days, the wine is transferred into stainless steel tanks where the malolactic fermentation takes place and subsequently refined on the lees (sur lie) for at least 9 months.?The wine is deep ruby red with purple tinges; the nose initially perceives a scent of cherries and berries, followed by spicy notes. In the mouth it is warm and soft with good freshness, moderate tannins and rather persistent finish. ?Food pairings: red meats or drink it alone as an aperitif.
