The white soils of this ancient and noble heartland of wine making in Sicily give its products a warming mellowness and a marked mineral tone. Symposio was created as a supreme interpretation of the local terroir. Cabernet, Petit Verdot and Merlot combine – here where the civilization of Enotria had its fulcrum – gaining in brilliance and mellifluousness. This wine, matured for 18 months in medium-sized barrels, is the result of the encounter between the freshness of Cabernet, the tanginess of Petit Verdot and the fruitiness of Merlot, becoming a Mediterranean symphony that takes on notes of undergrowth and stone. It is an aristocratic wine that is ideal for accompanying refined meat dishes and typical Sicilian specialities such as pasta alla Norma or Farsumagru.
Vinification and ageing
The grapes are picked manually during the third week of September, choosing only the best grapes. Vinification occurs separately in stainless steel tanks, according to the grape variety, at a controlled temperature followed by 30- day maturation. Then the malolactic fermentation takes place and maturation goes on for 18 months in 350 liter French oak barrels of first and second use.
