Feudo Maccari Nero d'Avola 2011

Feudo Maccari Nero d'Avola 750ml 2011   
Sku: 1827815

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Alberello trained (bush trained) vines are 12-34 years old, and have been planted with a southern exposure at 250 feet elevation, about one mile from the sea. Grape yields are low (about 2.5 tons/acre) to encourage concentration and complexity in the wine. In the spring, the vines are pruned to one bud per plant, and in June/July, a green harvest is performed to eliminate lesser grapes. Twenty days prior to harvest, the vines go through an additional cluster thinning, or a selection of the best grapes in the bunch.

Tasting notes
With a dark red ruby color, this wine shows expressive red berry aromas with herbal and fruity notes. On the palate, the flavors are structured and given balance by bright, cleansing acidity, a characteristic of Nero d’Avola grown in this area.

Food pairing
This wine pairs well with grilled red meats and BBQ.
