Noto Nero d'Avola

Noto Nero d’Avola

Sicilia Noto D.O.C.

100% Nero d’Avola

This wine is produced from the heart of the DOC Noto area in the old districts of Buonivini and Agliastro where Nero d’Avola has always been cultivated. A sort of ‘cadet’ to Santa Cecilia, and the perfect expression of the territory in a less extreme but always original version.

  • A memorable harvest for Nero d’Avola. Structure, balance, bright colors and exuberant nose accompanied by high alcohol, all perfectly balanced. We are more than satisfied with both wineries and we expect unique Cerasuolo and Santa Cecilia wines. The reasons for the superior quality can be traced back to the ideally dry and cool September, perfect for Nero d'Avola.

Tasting Notes

Purple purplish.
Typically characteristic of Nero d’Avola di Noto, with aromas of mulberry, blackberry and carob together with bay, incense and balsamic notes. Vibrant acidity and dense but soft tannins from its period in oak.
On the palate its character originating from the Noto area is confirmed, with elegance and structure of the wine perfectly combined.
