2014 Feudo Arancio Riserva Rosso
Colour: Intense red, thick and deep with lightly garnet reflections.
Nose: Mature, with notes of red berries as blackberry, raspberry and cherry, floral notes of violet and hints of tobacco and vanilla coming from the aging in wood.
Palate: Soft and juicy with elegant and fine tannins, this wine shows excellent structure and body.
This wine is produced with grapes from Feudo Arancio’s estate vineyards of Ragusa and Agrigento areas: two zones which have completely different climatic conditions and soil characteristics.
30% of the Nero d’Avola ages in steel to preserve the complex character of ripe red fruit, while the remaining 70% ages for 8-10 months in French oak barrels to soften the tannins and to add structure to this elegant wine. These are then blended to age a little longer together, first in steel and then in the bottle for additional 12 months.
Ideal with seasoned cheeses and cold cuts, ragù first courses, red meat and baked fish.
