'Vigne Vecchie ' Calabretta
Sicily is now one of the best known and most celebrated
Italian wine regions. Different territories, all very
suitable for the production of quality wine. For these
characteristics, there are many indigenous vines that give
prestige to this splendid region. Among the oldest wines, we
certainly mention Marsala, produced with the local Inzolia
and Grillo grapes, Passito di Pantelleria and the Malvasia
delle Lipari.Among the red grapes, we certainly mention Nero
d'Avola, with its spicy varietal notes. The tannic and longlived
Nerello Mascalese, native to Etna and Frappato. Among
the white grapes are Grillo and Inzolia, Cataratto , Zibibbo
Massimiliano Calabretta, winemaker from Randazzo, a
municipality located in the heart of the most famous volcano
in Italy, has very clear ideas about his territory,
practicing non-invasive agriculture.
The red "Vigne Vecchie" is produced from grapes of Nerello
Mascalese in purity, coming from vines of about 80 years of
age. An absolutely artisanal production, both in numbers and
in production methods. Spontaneous fermentation therefore,
and maceration of the must for 5 days in contact with the
skins with subsequent malolactic fermentation. The refinement
of the liquid takes place in 70 hl oak barrels for about 5
years with alternation to the passage in steel.
The Nerello "Vigne Vecchie" descends into the glass with a
dark ruby red color, of great intensity. Scent intense and
persistent notes of red fruit in alcohol, ethereal hints,
cinnamon, licorice, balsamic and mineral puffs. The sip is
tight and powerful, freshness with integrated tannins and
very long persistence.
