Nero d’Avola Merlot

Variety

Nero d’Avola, Merlot

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. After racking, Merlot is aged in French oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel vats for 4 months.

Tasting notes

Deep red color with matching highlights. The bouquet caresses the nose with homemade fruit jam, spices, and hints of vanilla. The wine has a medium structure with a soft, but persistent finish.

Pairing

The fresh natural acidity suits perfectly fatty foods like foie gras, salami, and barbecued pork. Serve between 14-16° C / 57-60° F. Enjoy immediately after opening or up to an hour before.

Un colore paglierino attraversato da sfumature verdi. Al palato i sentori di melone e frutta candita sono sostenuti da note di mango, kiwi e caprifoglio. La naturale acidità conferisce struttura e freschezza alla complessità del bouquet. 🥝 🌼 🌱 Brilliant yellow straw with olive hues. Lifted tropical melon and candied fruits are supported by intense mango, kiwi and honeysuckle on the palate. The natural acidity provides structure and freshness to the complex array of sweet tropical fruits. #baronemontalto #baronemontaltowine #experiencesicily #whitewine #grapes #sicilia #sicily #wine #vino #winelovers #winetime #instawine #winepassion #winery #winelife #wine🍷#redwine #vinorosso #ilovewine #lovewine #wineaddict #instavino #wineoclock #cheers #winewinewine #winesofinstagram #wineoftheday #cheers

When in Agrigento, you cannot miss the special local goat cheese! Goats here are not just regular goats: they are “girgentane” (from Agrigento), with beautiful spiral horns. Their cheese is special as well (and it is a Slow Food presidium): we tried it in the special reciepe at Nzolia wine bar with other amazing ingredients. #experiencesicily
