Description

Tornatore Etna Rosso DOC Trimarchisa 2016

Grape Varietals & Region: Nerello Mascalese and a splash of Nerello Cappuccio from the single vineyard site of Trimarchisa, Sicily, Italy. The Trimarchisa district is located in Verzella (a hamlet of Castiglione di Sicilia). It is a ridge in lava soil, with the presence of calcareous sediments, sloping down towards the Alcantara river. 

Taste Profile: Bright ruby in color. Aromas of cherries, raspberries and flowers with hints of vanilla, earth, cedar and liquorice. Medium bodied and dry, with a fresh & soft mouth with good concentration of fruit, accompanied with flavours of tobacco, cedar abd smoke.

Winemaking Process: Destemmed and not completely crushed, they are sent to truncated conical wooden vats, where they macerate for about 10/12 days. Daily, several times a day, to the grapes in maceration are carried out by manual punching down with the help of a pneumatic fuller. After fermentation the grapes remain to macerate for a few more days after which they are drawn off and pressed with a vertical press of the traditional type. The wine thus obtained rests in barrels of 25 hl, 18 months before to be bottled.
