It was 1972 when Cantine Paolini announced its first harvest, marking a milestone in the company’s history. From small parcels, as well as rows, juicy grapes Catarratto, Inzolia, Nero d'Avola and Frappato are still carefully trained to create the wines of the 72 Filara line that has always represented the beginning of a new path.
Nero d’Avola 60%, Frappato 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 12 months in tonneaux and barriques, then moved into cement vats; the assembly takes place after the aging in barrels.
Ten-twelve months in bottle develop the bouquet.
