Nero d’Avola Cabernet Sauvignon

Variety

Nero d’Avola, Cabernet Sauvignon

Production Area

Sicily Region - Valle del Belice

Soil

Medium soil with predominantly calcareous clay with iron. Mediterranean climate.

Winemaking

Maceration for 12-15 days at 26° C with daily pump overs. Once racked, a portion of the wine is aged in small French oak barrels and the rest in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

Tasting notes

This wine has an intense ruby red color with matching highlights. Phenolic, with a bouquet full of spices, dark fruit, and touches of caramel. This wine has an elegant structure due to the soft tannins and sweet vanilla.

Pairing

The spices on the palate pair well with barbecued meat, pizza, salami, and aged cheeses like Pecorino. Serve between 14-16°C / 57-60°F. Fine for serving shortly after opening.

A "drunk" Pizza, enriched by local ingredients such as Piccantino del Belice cheese, a special ham seasoned in Nero D'Avola marc and stone-ground flour of ancient Sicilian grains. The perfect match for our Passivento Rosso Terre Siciliane IGT, also used for the final touch of the dish, the wine reduction. Thank you Forneria Messina for this delicious recipe that starts our #ExperienceSicily journey.
