Wine Details




Nero D'avola





Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Nero d’Avola is a wine with velvety tannins and a pleasant lingering. It has a dark purple red colour and a fruity vein that reminds us of blackcurrant and bilberry. Delicious with grilled meat, roasted pork, mature cheeses and all types of cold pork cuts

Winemaker's Notes

"Intense ruby-red in color with supple aromas of ripe black cherry and blackberry, and hints of charcoal, vanilla and black pepper. On the palate, bursting flavors of ripe fruit and exotic spice are balanced by pleasant acidity and silky tannins. Delicious with roasted meats, eggplant parmigiana, pasta, grilled pork chops and veal casseroles." -Importer

Expert Reviews
  • Wine & Spirits
    (From 2006 Vintage) Sicily's finest Nero d'Avola-based wines? Over the past four years they have been made by the Morgante family at Grotte, near Agrigento, with the inspired assistance of Riccardo Cotarella, and this year as well they appear to have something which gives them that extra margin of distinction. The 2002 Nero d'Avola is truly surpristing for its vintage, with ripe and sweet black cherry and raspberry aromas, fragrant floral notes, and round, supple flavors with melting tannins on the close. Drink: 2004-2008.
