Sambuca di Sicilia is in the province of Agrigento, where rich, mature, and structured Nero d’Avola grapes are grown. It prefers clay-like terrain and is very sensitive to excessive dryness and too much exposure to sunlight. It is harvested in the first week of September once the grapes reach ideal polyphenolic maturation. Destemming and alcoholic fermentation occurs in contact with the skins for six to eight days at 22-24°C. Malolactic Fermentation occurs with select yeast. The wine is matured for six months in French oak barriques.
