More information about La Monaca Monreale DOC - Sallier de La Tour

The La Monaca Monreale DOC from Tenuta Sallier de la Tour is a complex and powerful red wine that perfectly conveys the varietal aromas of Syrah grapes.

In the glass, La Monaca Monreale DOC is a deep ruby red. On the nose, it reveals the typical aromas of the Syrah grape with penetrating spicy and aromatic herbal notes. Deep notes of dark berries, stewed plums and cedar reach the nose. These aromas can also be tasted on the palate. This is where the balsamic texture of this single-varietal Syrah unfolds. A juicy acidity balances out the intense fruit. Fine tannins caress the tongue and the finish is long and persistent.

Vinification of the La Monaca Monreale DOC from Sallier de la Tour

Tiered and growing on clay soil, the Syrah develops on the south-west facing vineyards 350 meters above sea level in the Monreale DOC, specifically in the Jato Valley, where the Syrah vines have found an almost ideal location. The yield is low, the quality and concentration of the grapes high.
The Syrah grapes are selectively harvested by hand and fermented at 25-30°C in steel tanks in contact with the skins. Malolactic fermentation takes place completely. The wine then matures for 14 months in French oak from Alliers and Troncais before remaining in the bottle for a further 6 months.

This wine is made from 100% Syrah grapes, a grape variety whose exact origins are still unknown, which is widespread throughout the world and has developed into a true terroir wine in Sicily. It is of great interest to the winery, as it has developed considerable potential in Sicily and has thus become the expression of a Sicilian terroir variety.

Dining recommendation for the La Monaca from Sallier de la Tour

Serve and enjoy this wonderfully expressive red wine from Sicily at 16-18°C in a carafe with grilled meat, lamb and mature cheese.
