Product Description:

2017 marks the fifth vintage from this vineyard. The vineyard is located in central Sicily, in the province of Caltanissetta, at about 1,600 feet above sea level. The altitude, together with the distance from the sea ensures great condition for ripening the Nero d'Avola. The vines are planted south facing following the vertical trellis system on sandy and clay rich soil using guyot pruning. Cool winters and a dry spring led to a desert-like summer. It seemed to have rained once in spring and then once again in early October. The 45th largest island in the world has never seen such fiery, relentless heat, with summer temperatures reached as high as 120 °F! Thankfully much of this was confined further inland and east of the vineyards. Harvest commenced nearly three weeks earlier than 2016 with yields down nearly 40% from 2016.
