Crushed & Cured

Palazzo del Mare Rosso, IGP Terre Siciliane, Italy, 2022


This red delivers ample ripe, plummy fruits, hints of spice and liquorice. Deliciously supple and juicy, the delicately herbal, savoury notes make this the perfect partner for a variety of dishes, reflecting the "melting pot" culture of Sicily.

Harvested in the cool of the morning for maximum preservation of fresh fruit flavours. Gentle pressing in a pneumatic press followed by overnight cold maceration in order to extract all the aromatics from the grapes. Fermented at 18C in stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks. A small proportion of the wine (10%) is whole bunch fermented adding bright, fresh red fruit flavours to the finished wine. 5% of the wine was matured in barrel for 6 months.
