Santagostino Baglio Soria Rosso is a legendary cuvée made from Nero d 'Avola and Syrah. This red wine from Firriato presents itself with a particularly deep ruby red and is one of the best that Sicily's wine world has produced so far.
Firriato Santagostino Baglio Soria Rosso reveals aromas of blackberries, raspberries, cherries and strawberries in the glass. Appearances of spices such as cinnamon and clove, but also cardamom and mint become palatable.
On the palate, the Santagostino Rosso enchants with complex and delicate tannins, a well-integrated fruit acid and a fantastically silky mouthfeel, which perfectly emphasizes both the spicy and the fruity aromas of the nose.
Vinification of Santagostino Baglio Soria Rosso
The grapes for this Sicilian red wine grow at 200 meters above the Mediterranean Sea and dig their roots in calcareous, heavy clay soil. After hand-picking, the grapes are mashed and fermented separately. After fermentation, the Nero d 'Avola and Syrah batches are assembled. Afterwards, the red Santagostino Baglio Soria matures for 8 months in American oak barriques. Now the wine matures for another 6 months on the bottle before it is finally placed on the market.
