Vigna Bufaleffi, located in the homonymous district of Pachino, is one of the most popular in Val di Noto. It sits at an altitude of 50m and has a warm Mediterranean climate. Here you find different types of soil from black clay to white limestone to red sandy soil.
This is 100% Nero d’Avola (named after Avola, a small town near Pachino in the province of Siracusa) where it has been selected by local growers several hundred years ago.

Grapes are harvested in the second half of September, start fermentation into red wine through a long maceration on their skins.
After the malolactic fermentation the wine is poured in small barrels, capacity 500L, where it remains for about two years. It is then has a further year in bottle before release.

An intense ruby red with violet hints. On the nose it is complex with characteristics of red fruits, blackberry and notes of vanilla. Take a sip and be bowled over by its elegant fruity flavour, structured and balanced, lingering on the palate.

Excellent with red meat, game and matured cheeses.
