Feudo Maccari Neré Nero d’Avola 2019

Italy / Sicily

Andy's Tasting Notes

An excellent example of this grape variety produced with no oak influence so as to enhance the exemplary fruit quality.  Generous and multi-layered flavours of dark cherry, plum, dried fruits, juicy prune and liquorice.

Lovely freshness with well-rounded tannins and well-balanced acidity.  Vibrant, rich and warming.

Producer notes: 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.

Price per bottle £11.50

Producer Info

Located in Noto on Sicily’s south-eastern tip near the town of Avola, Feudo Maccari was acquired by Antonio Moretti Cuseri – who also owns the Tuscan Tenuta Sette Ponti estate – and his daughter Monica in 2000. This region has extremely fertile volcanic soils, as indicated by the abundant lemon and olive groves, carob trees and flowering almonds. In 2002, after extensive trials to find the most suitable whites for the region’s volcanic and limestone soils, 18 hectares of Grillo were planted. This was in addition to around 50ha of existing Alberello (bush training) plantings of Nero d’Avola and Syrah dating back to the early ‘80s. These varieties flourish here, producing a portfolio of elegant and well-structured wines.
