Sicily has a history of winemaking that dates back to ancient times. Blessed with consistently bright sunshine and reliably moderate rainfall, Sicily's classic Mediterranean climate is ideally suited to the production of organic wine grapes. With its perfect environment, Sicily is considered the best region for production of Organic grapes in the whole of Italy.

Lamura is Sicily, is organic, is totally pure, made exclusively from what mother nature gave. Organically grown grapes and special care throughout the entire production process with care for the environment.

Tasting Notes

Intense red in colour, with aromas of ripe fruits and spices surging out of the glass. The palate is smooth with a good persistence.

 

Vineyard

The vineyards are located in Valle del Belice, a hilly land in the western part of Sicily.

Harvest

Manual harvest takes place in September, preferably during the night to preserve the healthiness of the grapes. The grapes are left to mature on the vines as much as possible, to obtain the characteristic aromas of mature fruits and jam. Only bunches at the perfect stage of ripeness are picked and then transported through small containers to avoid damages to the grapes.

Vinification

The grapes are generally destemmed and then soft pressed. Only a small percentage (about 10%) are left intact with the stem during fermentation to give more structure and complexity to the wine. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature and lasts about 3 weeks. Frequent remontage and delestage are carried out during fermentation in order to achieve soft extraction and concentration of aromas. After racking, malolactic fermentation occurs to increase the stability and roundness of the wine.
