Grape varieties

Nerello Mascalese

Wine: Rosé/ rosato Grape: 95% Nerello Mascalese – 5% Zibibbo Alcohol: 12.5 % Vol. Production: 4.000 bottles (750 cl e) Soil: Volcanic, low organic matter, rich in micronutrients, terraced landscape. Size of the vineyard: 1,5 hectar Vine training system: Alberello Vine of Pantelleria, recently inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Average age of the vines: 10 years Density per hectar: 4,500 Yield: 45 quintals per hectar Viticulture: “More than Organic”, with the use of some biodynamic techniques. No chemical fertilizers and synthetic products are used during cultivation. Most years the vineyard is left untouched. Non certified. Vinification: The Production of the “Cloe’” starts in the second half of September, with the harvest of the first optimally ripe grapes. The grapes are taken off the stem and pressed, blending together both theNerello Mascalese and the small addition of Zibibbo . Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks, using only the indigenous yeasts present in the skins of the grapes. The maceration is done for a few days, depending on the degree of intensity of color that you want to give to the wine. This process occurs naturally, without any additives nor sulfites. Decantation occurs naturally. The wine is unfined and unfiltered. Aging/elevage: The aging process lasts six months, partly in stainless steel silos and partly in chestnut barrels. The “Cloe’” is then bottled. Wine pairing ideas: The “Cloe’” pairs very well with raw fish appetizers and vegetables. It is also well matched with pasta, risotto, fish and white meat dishes. Suggested drinking temperature: Serve chilled (52 ºF)
