FEUDO MACCARI NOTO NERE NERO D'AVOLA 

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.

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.

Aromas of warm, ripe dark fruits with black cherry, plum and tarry, smoky notes. The palate is generous and fruit-forward with wild cherry and damson notes combining with spicy, dried fruit characters. Ripe, chewy tannins and fresh acidity give good structure, with an attractive bitter twist on the finish hinting at liquorice and burnt treacle. An impressive example of Nero d'Avola, combining approachability with real interest, depth and complexity. Great with full-flavoured meats such as roasts and game.
