Giuseppe Cipolla Passofonduto Rosso 2021

Where - Sicily, Italy
What - Nero d'Avola Blend
Body - Medium 
Style - Contemplate

Located on the south coast of Sicily, around 25km from Agrigento lies Passofonduto. In 2015 Giuseppe Cipolla decided to plant vines such as Cataratto, Zibbibo, Nero d'Avola and Nerello Mascalese on a small plot of family owned land. Along with this plot Giuseppe makes small batch minimal intervention wines from 2 other vineyards with an average vine age of 40 years.  

The 2021 Rosso is 90% Nero d'Avola and 10% Nerello Mascalese. The result is a deeper, darker fruited layered wine. Earthy, yet bright this is a wine to contemplate and pore over.
