"Sicily is a great source of good quality and excellent value wine. These are the qualities that have made this red blend a huge hit with customers. Just good honest fruit flavour. Perfect with a pizza."
Palazzo del Mare's vineyard sites are situated at an altitude of 200-300m, ensuring cooler night time temperatures which preserve crucial acidity in the grapes. Yields are limited by the winds and the wines tend to be harvested earlier than many of their neighbours and consequently are bright and fresh. Gentle pressing in a pneumatic press followed by overnight cold maceration in order to extract all the aromatics from the grapes. Fermented at 18C in stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks. A small proportion of the wine (10%) is whole bunch fermented adding bright, fresh red fruit flavours to the finished wine. 5% of the wine was matured in barrel for 6 months.
