Feudo Maccari Nero d'Avola 2010

Feudo Maccari Nero d'Avola 750ml 2010     
Sku: 1785708*

Alberello trained (bush trained) vines are 12-34 years old, and have been planted with a southern exposure at 250 feet elevation, about one mile from the sea. Grape yields are low (about 2.5 tons/acre) to encourage concentration and complexity in the wine. In the spring, the vines are pruned to one bud per plant, and in June/July, a green harvest is performed to eliminate lesser grapes. Twenty days prior to harvest, the vines go through an additional cluster thinning, or a selection of the best grapes in the bunch.

Tasting notes
With a dark red ruby color, this wine shows expressive red berry aromas with herbal and fruity notes. On the palate, the flavors are structured and given balance by bright, cleansing acidity, a characteristic of Nero d’Avola grown in this area.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Feb 2013)
Feudo Maccari?s 2010 Nero d?Avola is an absolutely ridiculous wine for the money. Dark cherries, flowers, licorice and tobacco come to life in this medium bodied, expressive wine. There is more than enough underlying structure to ensure at least several years of exceptional drinking. If this were Burgundy, the price would be twice as high. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.

Food pairing
This wine pairs well with grilled red meats and BBQ.
