100% Nero d’Avola, from a vineyard planted in 2004 at 550 meters (1800 feet) above sea level, between Corleone and San Giuseppe Jato.  Soil is impermeable clay with some sand, poor in organic matter and limestone, alkaline. Exact location: 37° 53' 31.93" N    13° 17' 20.95" E

The grapes are harvested during the first half of September; they are destemmed, crushed, and fermented on their own yeasts. The wine is pressed off after about 8 days, then aged in stainless steel tanks for about 6 months before bottling. Dry (less than 1 g/L of residual sugar.)  600 cases annual production. The wine takes its name from the church of the Madonna di Tagliavia, a few hundred yards away.

Fairly dark violet-tinged red. Berryish, spicy aroma (hint of black pepper); lead pencil; somewhat reminiscent of Syrah.

Very concentrated palate, fresh acidity, very clear berryish flavor, long, delicious. Finish honestly tastes like blackberry, with a faint hint of coconut, a common Nero d’Avola note. Much better, fresher wine than most Nero d’Avola but still forward and drinkable. Try it with red meats, flavorful pasta dishes.
