Careful selection of handpicked grapes. Maceration and
fermentation of the destemmed grapes in stainless steel
tanks at controlled temperature of 25°C for 15-20 days.
Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
24 months total, 18 in french and american tonneaux of
500 lt. Final ageing in bottle for 6 months.
The vineyards are situated in the surroundings of Mazara
del Vallo, past the gravel bank of the river. This testifies to
the presence of the typical water-rounded stones called
“Cuti”. Thus, the name of this wine is derived from the
originality of its soil which makes it both unique and
special. Complex and intense. Mature red fruits like
currant and prune merged perfectly with herbs and scents
of cocoa. It’s spicy, silky and persistent.
Rich and powerful wine that goes well with elaborate
dishes such as baked-pasta, grilled game or beef.
Alcohol 14% vol.
