Among the wines produced by a winery, there is always the most basic, the most prestigious, the most particular and the most required and it is hard to find a wine that satisfies the taste and pocket of everyone. Thus it is common to say “it is good but too expensive” or “ it is cheap but nothing special”.
Nevertheless, it happens, though very rarely, to find a wine that is well made, it is right for everyone’s taste and is a good value for money like the entry-level red wine made from Baglio Diar. Disira was the first wine to be bottled from Baglio Diar along with Diornu and the two together form the selection named Terroir.
Disira is a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Syrah, is vinified only in stainless steel tanks and rests in the bottle a month before being sent on the market. The name “Disira” is the sicilian version of the italian “Di sera” (in the evening) and is related to the picture on the label which represents the vineyards with the typical colours of the evening’s lights. The idea is to underline the close relation of the two first wines of Baglio Diar with their terroir, relating the white Diornu with the light colours of the vineyard and the red Disira with the darker ones.
Disira is ideal for those who want to drink a medium-bodied, elegant and fragrant red wine.
Pale ruby colour with a violet rim, Disira on the nose gives aromas of red flowers like rose and violet with pleasant notes of raspberry and blackcurrant. On the palate, it is medium-bodied, with silky tannins and really good acidity. Moreover, there are flavours of strawberry and blackberry with notes of thyme and black pepper which leave a lovely fresh aftertaste. Disira goes well with white meats or game cooked with aromatic herbs. It is a must to try with tomato fish sauce medium spicy.
This blend of Merlot/Syrah is a wine loved by wine merchants, conquers wine lovers and thrills professionals. Thus, tough has not been chosen by its prestigious name or price, Disira was the most sold from Baglio Diar in 2020 and is well appreciated among ten regions of Italy to confirm that, in truth, the real value of a wine is only inside the glass.
