Really appealing and great value Italian red wine! A red made from 100% Nero d'Avola grapes, grown on the black lands near the Vecchia Gibellina, at an altitude between 100 and 300 meters above sea level. The wine is aged first in steel and then in wood, a necessary step to make the right aromatic bouquet that is broad and mineral, with notes of wild berries and cherry. Nero d'Avola from the “I Contemporanei” line is a harmonious red with a good structure, which combines power and softness on the palate, showing off a strong and elegant personality at the same time.
It goes well with Sicilian baked anelletti and second courses based on red meat and game (pork sausage with gravy). Also perfect in combination with stewed fish and fresh stretched curd cheeses.
Nero D'Avola is the most widely grown and important variety in Sicily. This example is grown on black, silt rich, compacted soils 100 and 300 metres above sea level. Aromas of blackberry and spicy dark cherry. On the palate, moreish jammy blackberry with plenty of depth and light drying tannins.
