Tasting: Smooth old style aromas with direct light fruity aftertaste. Light tannins. Perfect “dinner” wine. Can be consumed directly.
Technical: Harvest made when grapes are ready. Controlled maceration of skins. By harvest of the grapes, the temperature lowered to 7 °C to avoid natural fermentation. Fermentation made without skins, production with controlled maceration of the skins. The wine rests four years before final market process starts.
Winery: Yard is located 730/ 750 m.a.s.l. on the north side of Etna volcano. Grapes grow on volcanic soil rich of minerals, built on terraces where the wind passes the vines naturally. In this area day and night temperatures vary greatly. Vinery was bought 2001 and remade by the family with new vines, built terraces and reworked soil. First harvest was 2007. The vineyard is in an organic process.
Additional Information: The name Sciarake comes from the Italian word “Sciara” which means lava flow as solidified.
