2009 Al Cantara U Toccu Pinot Nero IGT image

This wine is cultivated in a valley between the mountains Nebrodi and the volcano Etna at an altitude of 650 meters asl. The grape, Pinot Noir, of great international prestige, has adapted particularly well to the volcanic soil. The vines are cultivated using the Guyot system and the ancient system “Alberello” (“small tree”). This dual system depends on the size of the “terraces” were the vines are planted. Guyot: in the larger terraces; “Alberello”, in the smaller terraces, in order to keep the terroir intact. The grapes are harvested by hand in small baskets and de-stemmed. The grapes are collected in stainless steel tanks where fermentation takes place together with the marc (skins) at a temperature of 26-28 °C. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, approximately 9 days, the wine remains with the grape marc for about a month. The wine is then transferred in 225 litres oak barrels where it is kept for six months to age. After an additional year of aging in steel tanks, the wine is ready for bottling.?The wine is ruby red with good consistency. The nose perceives hints of red fruits, vanilla and lastly sweet notes of cocoa. In the mouth it is soft, fresh and fruity with elegant tannins.
