Grapes: A blend of mainly Nero d’Avola with a proportion of Merlot and Syrah
Vineyard area: The grapes are grown on the Trapani hills, using the traditional Spalliera system.
Harvest: Early October
Vinification: The grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed.
Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures not exceeding 28 C, with frequent pumping over in the early stages in order to ensure optimum colour extraction and soft tannins.
After fermentation, the wine is racked and the malolactic fermentation takes place.
Tasting notes: Sicily’s number one red grape variety, Nero d’Avola is indigenous to the island Our Fedele Rosso has a wonderful structure, yet has soft tannins and is very approachable.
Packed with red berry fruit flavours it is ideal with red meat and tomato based pasta sauces
