Nero d'Avola, Molino a Vento, IGT Terre Siciliane
Italy - 2018
Tasting Note: Pleasant aromas of red cherry and raspberry lead this wine, and are mirrored perfectly on the palate, alongside a mineral acidity. Subtle tannin's round this out and bring the wine through to a fruity finish.
Food Matching: The perfect accompaniment to pasta dishes with meat sauces. A classic beef ragu will be an ideal pairing, but alternatively the fresh fruit of the wine will translate to alternative versions of the dish – try with duck for an interesting combination.
Vineyard: Grapes are grown in a vineyard situated across the hills of Gibellina, which lies between 100-300m above sea level. Soils here are calcareous, containing higher than average levels of organic matter and iron, which impart complexity and unique flavors to wine.
Vinification: Fermentation is conducted for 12-15 days at 24-30°C with daily pump-overs and racking. The wine is then aged in a combination of stainless-steel tanks and French oak barriques for 2-4 months, before being bottled.
