Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"A Nero d'Avola with a vibrant, youthful and unmistakably Sicilian energy, with a lightweight appeal that makes it the perfect accompaniment to simple and tasty dishes. The clayey/sandy soils of a small plateau welcome vines grown in rows: but it is the nearby wooded vegetation that mediates the climate and gives Rossojbleo a certain liveliness and freshness, modelling it into an alternative version of the most classic Sicilian variety.
The Ragoleti vineyard extends to an altitude of 450 m above sea level for about 10 hectares on a plateau of the Hyblean mountains behind a large pine forest in Licodia Eubea, on the border between the provinces of Catania and Ragusa. The climate, temperate and cool, is favourably affected by the nearby forest vegetation. The soil is clayey with outcropping banks of limestone and a strong sandy component. There is a planting density of 8,900 vines per hectare. An espalier method is used for training vines. The non-irrigated vineyard yields no more than 85 quintals per hectare."
