Named after the district where Cantine Paolini has been producing its wines every day for over 50 years. Here the Gurgò wines are born, the perfect synthesis of a journey that starts from the vineyards and always follows the path of passion, of work, of tradition. A place where the presence of a carsic basin with a below-sea-level depression welcomes the flow of water giving fertility to the land. Strictly DOC, the Gurgo wines embrace the territoriality of Grillo, Nero d'Avola and Frappato-Syrah, and the internationality of Viognier and Chardonnay. We propose a selection of this wine line.
Frappato 60%, Syrah 40%
Pressing of the grapes is soft and alcoholic fermentation with maceration on the skins takes place at 27°C for about 11 days; after malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for at least six months in large very fine-grained oak barrels and then moved into cement vats; the assembly takes place after aging in the barrel.
Six-eight months in bottle to develop the bouquet.
Alcohol content: 13.5 % vol.
Ruby red color with violet tints, fragrant, intense, spicy and complex, full of well blended fruit and vanilla touches; on the palate it is rich, full and velvety, full bodied and aromatic, with elegant and gentle tannins.
