Tasting: Fresh and well structured with an aftertaste of small wild berries. Can be consumed directly.
Technical: Harvest made when grapes are ready. By harvest of the grapes, the temperature lowered to 7 °C to avoid natural fermentation. Fermentation made without skins, followed by refinement for 12 – 24 hours in stainless steel containers with controlled temperatures. Bottling after three to four months.
Winery: Wineyard 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. Winery 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: Zahra means “flower” in Arabic.
