The Santagostino Baglio Soria Rosso is a legendary cuvée from Nero d' Avola and Syrah. This red wine from Firriato is particularly deep ruby red and is one of the best wines that Sicily has produced so far.
The Firriato Santagostino Baglio Soria Rosso reveals aromas of blackberries, raspberries, cherries and strawberries in the glass. Reminiscences of spices such as cinnamon and carnation, but also cardamom and mint become palpable.
On the palate, Santagostino Rosso delights the palate with complex and delicate tannins, a well integrated fruit acidity and a wonderfully silky mouthfeel, which accentuates both the spicy and fruity aromas of the nose.
Vinification of the Santagostino Baglio Soria Rosso
The grapes for this Sicilian red wine grow 200 metres above sea level and dig their roots in calcareous, heavy clayey soil. After hand-picking, the grapes are macerated and fermented separately. After fermentation, the Nero d' Avola and Syrah are blended. The red Santagostino Baglio Soria then matures in American oak barriques for 8 months. Now the wine matures on the bottle for another 6 months before it is finally sold.
