Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) The highly praised Nero d’Avola triumphs once again with a label celebrating the magical art of a wine that is the source of the purest and most sincere emotions. Its native land is the Borgo Guarini estate in the countryside of Trapani, where the clay soil and windy conditions produce an extraordinarily appealing wine. The most famous grape variety in Sicily reaches the height of quality and perfection in this terroir, planted on the slopes of a hill distinguished by singular orographic conditions that reflect three different climates and territories. Here we find not just one Nero d’Avola, but a group of three well-defined crus that Firriato has immortalized after fifteen years of careful analysis and experimentation with the terroir to find the greatest perfection. With a single note, Harmonium manages to strike a chord with the soul, turning it into an undisturbed treasure trove of sweet and gentle melodies cloaked in a ruby red colour. Its music does not have the inauspicious destiny of oblivion because it is echoed in the persistence of the autochthonous red berries, so ripe and perfect, that make it a cathartic antidote. Its harmonious opulence makes it anardent tribute to Sicily’s passion for wine making.
