Doppiozeta Noto Rosso DOC - Sicilian Wine
DoppiozetaNoto Rosso DOC
€35,00

One of the first iconic Sicilian wines

The Nero d'Avola “cru”, from the three best single estate parcels rigorously bush trained. It comes from an organic viticulture (in conversion) combined with a sartorial work to best express the biodiversities of these three parcels. Naturally fermented and unfiltered.

Harvest

Winter temperatures were lower than average, with some frosts and a moderate amount of rain which gave the plants a healthy start. Mild spring temperatures aided vegetative growth and fruit set, which ended with the onset of heat on 3 June. It was an atypical summer for Sicily, with unstable temperatures that at times soared above 40°C (104°F) but also dropped off sharply at night, and constant light showers. This pushed the harvest back to ten days later than in previous years. The end result, however, was very satisfactory: a range of elegant wines fully in line with Zisola’s qualitative standards.

 

Beginning of the harvest: September 4th

End of the harvest: October 14th

Rainfalls (sum of rainfall between April 1st and September 30th): 185 mm

Harvest

After a 2017 year characterised by severe drought, but with temperatures lower than the average, 2018 began with little rain which, however, did not affect the shoot growth from the end of March.
Spring was mild until May, when the climate dramatically changed, with a drop in temperature and very strong rainfall. Summer, too, was quite temperate, with many heavy showers; therefore, the harvest was postponed for 15 days.
This climatic trend continued throughout September, with mild temperatures during the day and cool ones at night, which favoured the proper ripening of the grapes. The result is satisfactory and confirms the results obtained in the previous years, with very elegant wines.

Beginning of the harvest: August 22nd
End of the harvest: September 28th
Rainfalls (sum of rainfall between April 1st and September 30th): 273 mm
Temperature Index (sum of average daily temperatures from April 1st to September 30th): 4130 °C
Evaluation: Good
