Our Comrade Nero d’Avola is really where we turn the dial up in terms of work in the winery. We deploy a diverse range of winemaking techniques across a large number of small ferments so that when it comes time for the final blend, we have a number of complex elements to layer together. All ferments were lightly hand plunged daily and they all spent between 12 and 20 days on skins before being gently basket pressed directly into oak. Maturation occurred over 12 months on full lees in seasoned French oak puncheons and barriques.
Unfined, filtered gently, vegan-friendly, and hand bottled on site January 2022.'
