Sicilia I.G.T. Rosso

NEROBARONJ is a classic cru of the Nero d'Avola grape variety of Pachino. Production area: Val di Noto, the territory between the communes of Pachino and Noto in southeastern Sicily

VIGNA BARONI extends for about 3 hectares along the road of the same name in the southeasternmost corner of Sicily in the Val di Noto (Siracusa) at about 50 metres above sea level. The climate in this area, further south than Tunis, is temperate-hot Mediterranean. The plant density is 7000 vines per hectare grown ad alberello. The more than 30 year-old vines yield no more than 40 quintals per hectare .


STORAGE METHOD: horizontal in a cool place at a constant temperature not exceeding 18°C

AGING: ages well, becomes more austere and mature with time

Accompaniments:This is a wine in which the lively tartness of Nero d'Avola is its clearest. For this, it directly favours fats as well as the impetuousness of lean meat. Good with fresh tuna dishes (real tuna, red and fibrous), pork even in complicated preparation, or in Mediterranean recipes in which tomato and hot red pepper enrich and gratify the aromatic patrimony of the wine, exalting the accompaniment


Nero d'Avola, grape variety, sometimes incorrectly referred to as Calabrian (from the region of Calabria), is considered as the most typical and representative red grape of Sicily, excluding the territory of Etna. The incorrect name Calabrian is an "Italianization" of the word in old Sicilian dialect, "Calaurisi" which actually means, 'grape of Avola.'
The Nero d'Avola was selected for cultivation by grape-growers of Avola (Siracusa) several hundred years ago and spread to the commune of Noto (SR), the provinces of Ragusa and Caltagirone, and recently throughout the rest of the island. When cultivated to yield a low quantity of fruit per vine this grape variety is capable of expressing the characteristics of important aged red wines. An aroma of red fruit and typically "sweet" tannins that persist after many years are the most significant components. At the same time, this grape also lends itself well to the production of young and novello wines of a suggestive red and violet-tinged color, highly pronounced aroma of red fruit (plum, blackberry) and smooth tannins.
