Description

The first contrada in the heirarchy (pricewise, at least) is the limestone rich Baronj that yields a particularly energetic and bright/high toned expression of Nero D’Avola. The soil is so white here, that in the full sun, one wants to shield one’s eyes from the light. The wine aged uniquely in stainless steel after a shorter maceration to keep the focus on the purity and prettiness of its fruit and perfume. Both vintages sound delicious to me, and for the money, these sound silly good….. 14.5% alcohol here
“Deep ruby-red. Very perfumed aromatic nose of sweet spices, red cherry and blueberry. Suave and polished, with a multilayered quality to the fruit and mineral flavors present. Closes long and floral with a welcome nuance of ripeness.” 92 Ian D’Agata
