The Il Passo Nerello Mascalese from Vigneti Zabu is a balanced, soft and juicy red wine from the Italian wine-growing region IGT Terre Siciliane.
This Sicilian wine presents itself in a deep ruby red glass. Opulent aromas of blackberries and red forest berries flow into the nose, complemented by delicate floral nuances, Mediterranean herbs and fine wood. On the palate the Vigneti Zabu Il Passo is wonderfully aromatic. The aromas of the nose are joined by more wild berries, rounded off by a touch of vanilla and herbaceous rosemary spice. A wonderful wine rich in extracts with a full-bodied body and a spicy spicy finish .
Vinification of the Vigneti Zabu Il Passo
The basis of the Il Passo is first of all a relatively low yield of only 70 quintals per hectare, as Vigneti Zabu in the Sambuca di Sicilia region can guarantee. The shoots of the Nerello vines are blended in such a way that they do not resist the hot Sicilian sun and the African winds, thus allowing the grapes to dry naturally. Thus, both sugar and extract content in the Il Passo grapes increase considerably.
After about 15-20 days the grapes for the Vigneti Zabu Il Passo have lost about 15-20% of their weight. Now they are crushed and fermented. The Il Passo red wine is then decanted into French and American oak barriques and matured for about 6 months.
