Caruso & Minini Corte Ferro Nero D'Avola 2015 (1x75cl)
Caruso & Minini are a part of new revival in Sicilian wine. Smaller wineries have sprung up in the past decade with private investment and a strong interest in the potential of the native grapes from Sicily. One example is Caruso & Minini. When Mario Manini met Stefano Caruso it sparked a long-held dream to produce a wine in the historical winemaking region of Marsala in Western Sicily.
The grapes are all handpicked for this wine and they are carefully selected. The maceration and fermentation of the destemmed grapes happen in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 25°C. for 15-20 days. Malolactic fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks. 50% of the wine is aged in acacia wood tonneaux and french oak of 500 litres for 10 months. The rest ages in stainless steel tanks. Finally the wine is aged in bottle for four months before being released for sale.
This wine has a wonderful colour and tone as well as possessing elegance. On the palate it is slightly spicy with strong and creamy tannins.
This goes extremely well with Mediterranean dishes as well as roasted meats.
