Note di degustazione

Few wines are able to evoke the ardent spirit of Sicily, as fiery as the sun that scorches this inimitable land, like Nero d’Avola. Traditionally used as a blending wine for its colour and its renowned potential of alcohol content - it is an essential component of the Cerasuolo di Vittoria, the only DOCG in Sicily - in recent decades oenologists have become increasingly interested in Nero d'Avola as a pure wine, to magnify each one of its specific aromatic characteristics.

Besides the substantial body and high alcohol content, the Nero d'Avola, vinified in its pure state, is in fact able to offer an unusual olfactory complexity, a feature enhanced in this particular version by an aging completely in steel tanks in order to keep the pure wine at centre stage.

As much to the nose as to the palate, the Nero d'Avola Stella del Sud allows its taster a sensory experience that is both unusual and fascinating, distinguished by a seductive complexity.

The succulent fruity bouquet, rich in plum, blackberry, black cherry and forest fruits, is intertwined with multifaceted tertiary scents, sweet and slightly spicy, giving life to an aromatic picture that returns, marvellously consistent, to the palate. Here the intense alcoholic heat counterbalances the astringent notes of tannins, guaranteeing not only a pleasant balance - which also contributes to the lively freshness - but also a significant persistence.

Grilled meats and well-aged cheeses are certainly the best table companions for this Nero d'Avola, which however never fails to amaze even in combination with cheeses such as pecorino or caciocavallo  and fish (grilled tuna).
