Aquilae Nero D'Avola

Aquilae Nero D'Avola

Ref: A104215

Big and spicy with a really generous perfume that takes in cinnamon, cloves, liquorice, sandalwood and baked plums. Opulent but tight and well balanced. (14% abv - 2013)

A silky texture on the palate, which follows a lovely rich fruitcake nose of some intensity and has a long full finish.

Made by the Cooperative in Canicatti from 100% Nero d'Avola, also called locally Calabrese, and grown in the vineyards around the town on the Southern coast of Sicily the grapes are harvested in mid-September and then undergo a maceration of 12-18 days. The wine is then fermented at 28 ºC for 20 days, in cement vats with a malolactic fermentation following. It is aged in stainless steel vats before being bottled in the following spring. The winery has been almost totally rebuilt in the past two years and now produces wines of excellence in both quality and price.

Aquilae means Eagle in Latin and refers to the nesting birds that surround the vineyards up around 700m on Mount Etna.
