Details of wine

In the district of Maccari, in the middle of the Val di Noto, this exceptional Cru of Nero D'avola, Nero Maccarj, is born. Vineyards with an average age of less than 35 years, a calcareous clayey soil belonging to a particularly ancient formation and a particular attention to the ring give this wine unique characteristics.
The grapes harvested after mid-September are vinified in red with long maceration of the must with the skins. At malolactic fermentation the wine is decanted in small 500 and 225 liter barrels where it remains for about 24 months. After bottling, the wine matures for about two years in the bottle.
Dense and powerful, it deserves the meat, the noble poultry, those dishes in which the acidity accompanied by a concentrated and compact tannins are able to contrast and penetrate the fiber without getting upset. The strong tannin suggests to combine it with spicy and spicy dishes.
