The “virgin” ecosystem and the wind that blows from the nearby Tyrrhenean Sea, safeguard the health of the vines and so minimise the use of agropharmaceuticals. Thermals from the nearby river intensify the aromas of the native cultivars. A south west exposure to evening sun slows down the ripening of the grapes. This softens the harshness that can sometimes be found in wines from the south. The grapes on each cultivar are picked by hand according to their ripeness. Each grape variety is vinified separately, and then amalgamated after the first decanting according to the size of the yield.

It is produced after years of dedication to research, experimentation and enthusiasm in creating quality wines. The grapes of Sangiovese, Syrah and Merlot are hand-harvested when technological and phenolic maturity are reached. The refrigeration at 7°C and the cold maceration in large oak barrels allow to maintain the complexity of the aromatic compounds naturally present in grapes. Subsequently the temperature-controlled fermentation (28°C)takes place and it is followed by an aging of 10 months in large wooden casks.

Buying the case of 6 bottles you will save 10% A fresh and fruity blend of Syrah and Nero d\'Avola grapes.
Syrah (70%) and Nero d’Avola (30%), the two indigenous Sicilian red grapes, come together in this SYNE, part of the Pietro line, in honour to Nino’s father. Since their similarities they do no curse one with the other, on the contrary, they blend to unite the qualities of both, one more fresh and red fruit oriented, the other more reminding of ripe black fruit. The blend results in a wider taste, more complex and more exciting. The complexity is also due to the aging of half of the volume during almost two years in medium toasted American barrels. The already rich base now is agreeably loaded with more vanilla and wood tannins, which give the wine also a long aging potential (5-8 years).

Dry With smooth tannins, quite strong, but not sharp at all, in good balance with the alcohol. It can age until 4-5 years.
Nero d\'Avola is the most important red wine grape in Sicily and is one of Italy\'s most important indigenous varieties. It is named after Avola in the south-east of Sicily; the vine likes hot and arid climates. A well-made Nero has good dark concentration. Because of its wild character some colleagues blend their Nero d’Avola with Frappato, Nerello Mascalese, Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, to obtain less acidity, more elegance, more oral fragrance and softer fruit. This young NE however is Nero d’Avola in purity.
