Gulfi Nerosanloré Nero d’Avola IGT

INTRODUCTION

Nerosanloré is made from first-growth grapes grown in the historical and highly reputed San Lorenzo vineyard. This vineyard faces onto the southeasternmost seaside of Sicily, which makes it the Cru of Nero d’’Avola most influenced by the briny breezes blowing from the sea. Bush-vines are over 60 years old, yielding a mere 4 tons of grape per Ha. Vine density is up to 8000 plants per hectare, trained with the traditional low-bush system. The topsoil is completely loose and sandy, black-coloured soil with elevated content of iron oxides. The sea waters impregnate the porous bedrock of volcanic origin (Tufo) and contribute to the unique minerality of this special Nero d’’Avola.

TASTING NOTE

Nerosanloré rivals with Neromàccarj as for depth and opulence, possibly with a surplus of finesse and balance imparted by the sandy soils this vineyard lies onto. The nose is layered, plush, and exotic, with expansive aromas of blackberry jam, Asian spices, mint, and brine. The palate offers a mass of supple, meaty flavours, with ripe acidity and extremely smooth finish. The wine will likely reach its plateau of maturity between 8 and 10 years of bottle age.
