Perricone, Tenute Orestiadi
Italy – 2017
Tasting Note: Aromatic Sicilian red, packed with red berries and Mediterranean herbs, with an inviting light dusting of black pepper.
Food Matching: The fruity flavours of the Perricone mean it works best with legumes, as well as long-seasoned Italian cheeses. It's somewhat spicy character also makes it an excellent pairing for lightly spiced Sicilian dishes.
Vineyard: The Perricone grapes are grown in a soil rich with sand and stones. This, combined with long, hot summers, creates the perfect microclimate for the farming of indigenous red Sicilian varietals.
Vinification: Perricone, the Sicilian indigenous grape, is picked by hand in small boxes in September. The grapes are hauled in small containers and are gently stemmed to better preserve the integrity of the grape skin. Fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature, between 24º and 26º C. The wine ageing in bottle for 1 year before being released to the market.
