Tasting Notes

Named for a pretty, purple Sicilian flower, this is a lovely, purple wine, its aromas of ripe plums, wild blackberries, and jasmine surpassed in the mouth by chocolate, forest floor, and black truffle.

Vinification

Plumbago – named after the beautiful purple wild flower that grows in the woods surrounding the farmhouse and vineyards of Ulmo – is a single-variety Nero d’Avola. It is produced from the old vineyard at Lake Arancio which gives us this soft fruity version of this great Sicilian grape variety. Rounded tannins and perfectly judged wood makes it an immediately pleasurable wine. Ideal for Mediterranean cooking based on vegetables and all types of meat.

Vinification: "Vinification: after destalking and pressing, the grapes ferment in stainless steel vats and remain on the skins for 14 days at 25⁰C with repeated mixing; at the end of the period racking by soft pressing. The wine thus obtained undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel, in January it is transferred to wooden barrels for 10 months. Maturation: barriques and tonneaux used 3 and 4 times. "

Food Matching

Perfect for matching with grilled meat with its affinity for smokey tones and its natural sweetness which goes with any sauce.
