The “Terra Di Vento” by Enza La Fauci is a Sicilian red wine from the province of Messina, made from Nerello Mascalese, Nocera, Nerello Cappuccio and Nero d’Avola grapes. Harvested and vinified individually between late August and mid-October the grapes are cold macerated for 10 days prior fermentation. Aged for 12 months in used oak barrels and 6 months in bottle prior release, this wine shows an intense ruby red color and develops ethereal notes of ripe red and black fruit on the nose, such as cherries and blackberries. In the mouth it is structured, harmonious and characterized by a light sapidity which is a true trademark of the cellar. Closes with a slight bitter note, with a tannic mouthfeel, sea savouriness and leading to an excellent persistent finish. It is a taste of great elegance, which is beautiful to sip and so capable of transporting you to the hills of Faro, a magical place, among the most beautiful and least known in all of eastern Sicily but which can give unique wines with a strong Mediterranean character. Ideal pairing with spicy meat dishes.
