Vinification: The Syrah grapes were harvested by hand at optimal maturation from organic vineyards located just south of Palermo. Thanks to the vineyard’s location at high altitude, with cool nights combined with the warm climate, you get a very balanced wine with good freshness and power. After harvesting, the grapes have been dried for 29 days according to the Appassimento method, followed by storage on oak barrels for about four months prior to bottling.

Taste profile: Moneta Reale has an intense bouquet of sun-ripe cherries, spices, chocolate and oak that harmonizes perfectly with the fruitiness and power. The taste delivers sun-ripe cherries, vanilla, chocolate and toasted oak in perfect harmony. With dishes of beef, lamb or wild boar, this becomes a very interesting wine that also goes well with rich vegetarian dishes. Serve at 16-18 degrees.
