The vines that source Morgante's Nero d'Avola DOC are grown at high elevation (1,476 - 1,804 feet above seal level). Here, in the southern reaches of westsern Sicily, the landscape is arid and rolling. However, Morgante's position within reach of cool coastal breezes ensures healthy and optimal ripening conditions.
The 15 days of fermentation in temperature-controlled steel tanks allow for full, yet gentle, extraction of tannin and color while maintaining emphasis on the softness of Nero d'Avola.
This wine shows aromas of ripe black cherries and blackberries accompanied by hints of vanilla, peppery spice, and smoke. On the palate, abundant flavors of ripe fruit and exotic spices are balanced by a pleasing acidity and silky tannins.
