The Ammasso Rosso Sicilia by Barone Montalto appears in a bright crimson. This red wine has an opulent and at the same time gently balanced bouquet that contains ripe berry fruits such as blackcurrants, blueberries, raspberries and also nuances of cherry jam. Candied notes and roasted sounds are added.
On the palate, the Ammasso by Barone Montalto is wonderfully tasty and sensual. Delicate melting and round tannins make this cuvée from Sicily a special experience. An elegant and remarkably powerful wine.
Vinification of the Ammasso by Barone Montalto
The grapes for the Ammasso come from various Sicilian vineyards and are concentrated by the Passito process, i.e. by drying the grapes. After eight to ten months of ageing in French barriques, this cuvée from Nero d 'Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon matures in bottle for another four months before the wine finally comes on the market.
