Growing Region: Sicily
Grape varieties: Nero d’Avola
Winemaking: After crushing the grapes are fermented at a controlled temperature. After racking and soft pressing the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks.
Characteristics: This grape variety from Sicily has a red colour with violet nuances and an intense scent. Notes of cherry, black raspberry, currant and pomegranate stand out. Perfect with first courses, red meat and savoury cheeses. Lingering, warm, fruity finish.
Best served with: Nero d’Avola is a great wine to match with rich meaty meats. Some classic pairings include oxtail soup and beef stew, but you could easily swap BBQ burgers with bacon and everyone will think you’re a genius. The gamier the meat the better because it will simply make your wine taste more fruity and candy-like
Serving temperature: 16 – 18° C
