Details for Barraco Terre Siciliane Pignatello 2015
Bottle size and vintage
Pignatello is the red grape variety which reigns supreme in the Trapani vineyards, but nevertheless, despite this dominant presence, it's a rare occurrence to taste a wine in which this grape expresses itself in all its purity. Barraco Pignatello offers one of these rare opportunities. A wine in which, thanks to the producer's sensitivity, the grape's characteristics are expressed in all their splendour. The wine ferments by means of indigenous yeasts and ages for several months in stainless steel, and without any ageing in wood so that the variety's distinctive features are enhanced.
In the glass, it appears a raspberry-red colour with clear and fragrant aromas of strawberries, red currants and cranberries; the sea's influence doesn't take long to reach us with the powerful taste of iodine and after that, other hints of tobacco, liquorice, India ink and Mediterranean maquis. On the palate it lives up to our expectations and we find a fruity, fresh wine that makes its entrance forcefully. It's vibrant, flavoursome and with very well balanced tannins which make it an invigorating wine to enjoy sip by sip.
