The Gerbino Rosso is the Di Giovanna’s classic blend that is the pillar of their production. It expresses their unique terroir and climate in a harmonious blend of classic international varieties and the native Nero d’ Avola. Named after the Gerbino vineyard, it is the oldest family vineyard owned by their great grandfather.
Hand harvested grapes, crushed and macerated for 5 days, temperature controlled. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks, each varietal seperately. The Nero d’Avola & Syrah are aged in second and third year French oak barrels for 3 months. The wine is finally blended to achieve the classic Gerbino Rosso blend style.
Deep red in color with shades of violet. Fresh fruity nose of wildberries, plums and spice. In the mouth the oak flavors are well integrated, notes of plums follow, accompanied by soft tannins and slightly spicy finish.
Pair with roasted or grilled chicken or pork, roasted vegetables, potatoes with rosemary, sausage. The wine is so versatile it works beautifully with a simple pasta and tomato sauce plate or pizza!
