Contrada - 2011 - Giusto Occhipinti

Azienda Cos

A vintage now perfectly mature, with a nose of undergrowth, black fruits, leather and amarena cherry liqueur. A complex, deep, unctuous palate with great length. Some of the most beautiful emotions we’ve ever had from Nero d'Avola. To be enjoyed by two at the most! Decanting recommended.

100% Nero d'Avola, from vines around 50 years old, cultivated organically and pruned in according to the gobelet and “Alberello” methods, by which the vines are grown in small craters in volcanic soils, protecting them from wind, and allowing them to take advantage of the morning humidity. The parcel is situated at 230 metres on red soils, and harvested by hand at the end of September. Vinification is done naturally, with indigenous yeasts, use of gravity for cellar tasks, and a long maturation in Slovenian barrels and in bottles at the estate.
