FIRRIATO SANTAGOSTINO BAGLIO SORIA 2012

The Baglio Soria Estate is home to one of Firriato's oenological treasures- a quintessentially Sicilian red that has seduced wine lovers the world over with its pleasing complexity and its perfect balance between freshness and alcohol content. Rich in fruitiness and elegance it is a pioneering Sicilian blend of international and native grape varieties. The terroir in which it grows, its proximity to the coast, and the prevalence of clay and red marl in its soil contribute to creating climate and soil conditions that are unique in the agricultural setting of western Sicily. Santagostino Baglio Soria Rosso is the fruit of this uniqueness, remaining true to itself over more than thirty vintages. Harvest after harvest, it proves to be the emblematic symbol of Firriato's oenological style with its impenetrable ruby red colour, releasing elegant nuances and velvety tannins in the glass.

With more than thirty years of production behind it, Santagostino Rosso, a blend of Nero d'Avola and Syrah, is one Siciliian red that has met with great success on both a national and international stage for winemaking and producing. The Sicilian Nero d'Avola and the international Syrah are grown in the Baglio Soria estate, where soils are mainly composed of red marlstones. The texture is characterised by steady subsoil moisture enables vines to not undergo water stress especially over droughtier vintages so as to better respond to heat stress. As a metter of fact these conditions seem to be crucial fo Syrah cultivation perfectly responding to environmental characteristics by gradually maturing. The soil texture together with the southern exposure that benefits from direct sunlight action eases an increase in peel thickness and major tannins and aromatic fragrances concentration. From this complicated interaction among "vine, climate and soil conditions" a colorful wine rich in elegant tannins comes out. A very drinkable and pleasant wine with a plump body. it is simply outstanding in its class.
