Macramè

 

The name comes from the Arabic word for a craft technique of knotted, interwoven yarns that create lace and fringes. The term “macramé” is a perfect way of indicating our perception of wine as careful, precise work to bring together Nero d’Avola and Merlot varieties and their terroir, thanks to a complex process that involves a slight drying of grapes already on the vine. The interweaving of all these elements becomes Macramé.

Impressions
Thanks to tannins ripened in the sun, the palate is truly satisfying, and the flavour spruces up the entire mouth to prepare it for the next sip. Precisely what a balanced wine must offer the consumer.

We recommend oxygenating the wine in a large decanter for 30 minutes prior to tasting.
