Stemmari Pinot Noir 2011

External Review by WineExpress.com:

This wine is produced in Sambuca of Sicily, in the province of Agrigento. It is best when grown with a lot of sunlight and in soil that has a light amount of clay. The type of farming is “Espalier”, used with an average density of planting where there are 4500 plants per 2.5 Acres to keep yields down. 100% Pinot Noir, grapes have achieved perfect, aromatic, and polyphenolic maturation, they are de-stemmed and cooled for compressing and maceration at 54 degrees for 2 days. The successive alcoholic fermentation takes place for 7 days at 77 degrees. A small portion of the wine is matured in French oak barriques for 6-7 months. Emerging notes of blackberries, wild strawberries, cherries integrated with inklings of spice derived from the aging in the oak barrels. Dry, with delicate tannins, balanced by a pleasing acidity and bright fruit on the palate.
