Baglio Gibellina, Sogno del Sud Organic Nero d'Avola, DOC, Sicily, Italy, 2019

Producer Profile

Baglio Gibellina is situated in picturesque Sicily where its vineyards are surrounded by the hills of Salemi and Santa Ninfa.

Old vineyards located between 300-600m above sea level are grown on a mixture of clay and volcanic soils with limited yields allowing for the production of outstanding wines with incredible food matching potential.

Viticulture

Nero d’Avola is a very important native varietal. Initially found in Siracusa, it is now spread in all the wine-making areas on the island. The selected old vineyards are located on the hills between 300 metres to 600 metres above the sea level. The vineyards are cultivated on clay soil with limited yields of grape per hectare using Guyot technique. This type of cultivation prefers clay-like terrain and is very sensitive to excessive dryness and too much exposure to sunlight.

Winemaking

The grapes are harvested by hand first week of September, and are vinified in small stainless steel tanks at acontrolled temperature of 15°C.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

Deep ruby-red and violet flecks. Intense nose of pomegranate and wild strawberries and hints of red berry fruits. Soft and velvety, full bodied with smooth and sweet tannins.
