This elegant Nero d’Avola Bio, made entirely from organic grapes is a wine with a good body, soft tannins and intense Mediterranean scents

WINEMAKING

100% Nero d’Avola harvested by phenolic ripeness. Fermentation is conducted for 12-15 days at 24-30°C with daily pumpovers and 1 delestage. The wine is matured in stainless steel tanks and minimal oak contact to preserve fruit freshness.

The vineyards of Tenute Orestiadi   stretch out between the gentle hills that open onto the Belice Valley and the sea of the ancient Selinunte.  The wines are produced in these lands, full of history and profoundly scarred in 1968 by an earthquake (6.3 Richter) that completely obliterated lives, identity and places.

The name of Tenute Orestiadi evokes distant myths and legends, like the one of Orestes which thanks to Aeschylus, twenty centuries ago, were brought to the stage.

In Sicily, the history of the windmills and wine are linked by the wind, an essential element for the health and quality of the grapes. Its presence helps mitigate the hot summer temperatures thus contributing to the incredible climatic variations essential for the life cycle of the vineyards.
