In a Nutshell
The grape variety Nero d'Avola was originally selected in southern Sicily and suits warm climates. Coriole produces a fruit-forward, early-drinking style.
A bright and generous nose of redcurrant, berries and cassis. The layered fruit flavours are balanced with dried herb and savoury spice. The supple tannins, juicy flavours and natural acidity create a wonderfully rich and mouth filling wine. Highly drinkable as a young wine.
Now sourced from three vineyards, two at Coriole and one at the base of the foothills, the Nero vines have really established themselves. The fruit is handpicked and then destemmed, resulting in whole berries. These are then cold soaked for four days before they are brought back to temperature and allowed to ferment naturally. The must is over seeded with yeasts chosen to lift the natural aromatics on the variety. After a brief spell in seasoned oak, the wine is bottled at about 6 months of age.
