DENOMINATION: Red - Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC
GRAPES: Nero d'Avola.
PRODUCTION ZONE: South-western Sicily, Contessa Entellina Estate and nearby areas.
TERRAINS: altitude from 200 to 600 m a.m.s.l. (656- 1,312 ft); hilly orography; clay loam soils with a sub-alkaline reaction (pH 7.5 to 7.9) rich in nutritive elements (potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, manganese, zinc) and total limestone from 20 to 35%.
VINEYARD: VSP (Vertical Shoot Positioning) training with spurred cordon pruning g, leaving 6 to 10 buds per plant. Planting density of about 5,000 plants per hectare, with yields of 7.5 - 8.5 tons/ha (3.0 - 3.4 tons/acres).
VINTAGE:At Contessa Entellina in the year 2017, 555 mm of rain was recorded, a figure that is slightly below the average*(661 mm) of this territory. Since rainfall was mainly concentrated in autumn and winter, during the summer months of June and July, we intervened with emergency irrigation. Thus the vineyards were able to complete the vegetation-production cycle in a regular manner. Regarding temperatures, between July and August, values were higher than seasonal averages and this resulted in the ripening of all the varieties cultivated in the area 1-2 weeks earlier than usual. Despite the peak temperatures, in this period of the summer, good temperature ranges between day and night have given healthy grapes with an excellent aromatic and phenolic maturation. Furthermore, there was a quantitative decrease of about 15% compared to the company average. Thanks to a careful management of agronomic practices and vinifications, the quality of the vintage is positive: the ideal phenolic ripeness given reds of great elegance. (*VINTAGE: in Contessa Entellina we consider the period from October 1 to September 30; RAINFALL: average obtained from SIAS, (Sicilian Agrometeorological Service), the average is calculated at Contessa Entellina from the harvest 2003).
HARVESTING:The Nero d’Avola destined for the production of Sherazade was harvested in the first ten days of September.
VINIFICATION: in stainless steel with maceration on the skins for about 6-8 days at a temperature of 24-25 °C (75- 79°F). After malolactic fermentation, the wine fines for about 4 months in tanks and then for at least 3 months in the bottle.
ANALYTICAL DATA: alcohol 13.05 % vol., total acidity: 5.2 g/l., pH: 3.53
TASTING NOTES (30/06/2021): With bright ruby red color with violet reflections, Sherazade 2020 presents a fruity bouquet with hints of plum and cherry flanked by delicate spicy notes (black pepper) and balsamic hints. On the palate the fruity notes return smoothly, a red of great softness and excellent freshness. The caressing tannin completes this fragrant and pleasant wine.
LONGEVITY: 3-4 years.
FIRST VINTAGE: 2006.
FOOD & WINE: We suggest it with fish soup, pizza or classic tomato spaghetti. Serve it in goblets of medium size; uncork at time of serving; excellent at 15 - 16°C (59- 61° F).
