    Unit; Each

    About halfway between Avola (the town that lends its name to this grape variety) and Pachino (famed for its IGP Tomatoes) lie the south-facing vineyards of Feudo Maccari, where bush vine Nero d’Avola soaks up the near endless Sicilian sunshine. Here is a lovely vibrant example, with a succulent and juicy prune compote character, with notes of chocolate and warm spice.

    Production
    The Nero d'Avola vines (average age 10-30 yrs) grow around 80m above sea level on a south-facing site. They are all 'albarello' (head-trained) bush vines - which are particularly suited to hot and windy climates. The grapes undergo 15 days of maceration and fermentation with regular punching-down of the cap. The wine is matured in stainless steel.

    Tasting notes
    Aromas of warm, ripe dark fruits with black cherry, plum and tarry, smoky notes. The palate is generous and fruit-forward with wild cherry and damson notes combining with spicy, dried fruit characters. Ripe, chewy tannins and fresh acidity give good structure, with an attractive bitter twist on the finish hinting at liquorice and burnt treacle. An impressive example of Nero d'Avola, combining approachability with real interest, depth and complexity.

    Food match
    Great with full-flavoured meats such as roasts and game.
