Full tasting note and wine making –
Nero d’Avola Palazzo del Mare Leggermente Appassito is decadent and delicious. It has velvety aromas of cassis, and ripe red berry fruits on the nose with a soft delicate palate. Christmas cake in a glass, soft and round with excellent body and balanced acidity. Persistent red cherry finish.
It is made from sun dried Nero d’Avola grapes to remove the water content of the grape leaving behind the residual sugars and a highly concentrated juice before blending with a percentage of Nero d’Avola wine.
The island’s geography and climate are perfectly suited for the production of healthy, ripe grapes and quality wines. Vineyard sites are situated at an altitude of 200-300m, ensuring cooler night time temperatures which preserve crucial acidity in the grapes. The average age of the vineyards is 15 years old.
A combination of hand and machine harvested grapes, yields are naturally limited by the winds and climactic conditions on the island and average around seven tonnes per hectare. The Palazzo wines tend to be harvested earlier than many of their neighbours and consequently they are bright and fresh with no jammy, baked flavours. The wine is aged in large oak barrels for 6 months.
