Lamoresco Rosso - a little hit of springtime, perfect for pasta
The Rosso ‘17 is a blend of Nero d’Avola and Frappato from 40 year old vines, vinified naturally without temperature control or sulfites. Cherry and clay pot, strawberry and pomegranate, an array of wild flowers and spices. The 2017 Rosso from Lamoresca is easy to love
Lamoresca is located in the southern most corner of the province of Catania, between Etna and Gela on the southern coast, at ~450 meters above sea level. The area has a combination of deeply compressed sandstone soils mixed with calcium and iron rich clay. The old vines are a mixture of nero d’avola, grenache and nerocapitano (frappato) for the reds, and the extremely rare vermentino corso and some roussanne for the white; all of which are worked without the aid of any chemical or pesticide. The wines are naturally fermented without temperature control and only minimal sulfur is used, and only if deemed absolutely necessary.
