Hierà Rosè IGP Terre Siciliane
This rosé is made from Alicante, Nocera and Nero D’Avola grapes. It is fruity and mineral, recalling the breathtaking sea surround the uncontaminated island of Vulcano, where the vineyards are located. The island was called Hierà, meaning “sacred,” by the ancient Greeks, hence its name.
After careful selection of pristine grapes grown in elevated vineyards with volcanic soil and excellent exposure, Hierà macerates overnight for color and depth and is then aged in stainless steel and bottle. Ripe, red berries with lovely balsamic and mineral notes with crisp palate make it perfect for any occasion, especially summer dinners by the seaside.
