Description

The “Vignadorata” by Enza La Fauci is a Sicilian red wine from the province of Messina, made from 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes. Vineyard located in Mezzana-Messina at an altitude of 330 meters above sea level on a clay-limestone mix soil. Grapes are cold macerated at a controlled temperature prior fermentation with only indigenous yeast. Aged for 18 months in used oak barrels prior release, this wine shows an intense ruby red color with purplish highlights. Nose full of red fruits on a bed of the typical scents of the Mediterrenean such as thyme and myrtle while also being sapid and persistent. 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.
