Hugonis Cabernet Sauvignon-Nero d'Avola Terre Siciliane, Rapitalà

Hugonis Cabernet Sauvignon-Nero d'Avola Terre Siciliane, Rapitalà

The grapes are grown at up to 400 metres above sea level, to allow for a long hang-time and full flavour development. The two grape varieties are aged separately, the Cabernet Sauvignon in small French oak barrels and the Nero d’Avola in much larger barrels for about ten months. Once blended, the wine is allowed another three months ageing in large oak barrels to become fully integrated. Deep red with a complex bouquet reflecting the varieties with notes of blackcurrant, cedar, ripe black cherry and spice, the tannins are fine and velvety, but the wine is unmistakably powerful and rich.
