Nero D’Avola – Red Italian Wine

Wine of Italy

Type of Closure: Natural Cork

Current Vintage: NV
Producer: Schenk Italia
Grape Variety: Nero d’Avola
Winemaker: Edigio Finazzer

Vinification Details: The grapes are firstly crushed which allows the must to extract colour and tannin from the skins. Fermentation then occurs at temperatures between 22 – 25°, during which the skins are racked and returned to the liquid several times to extract flavour, structure and stability. The wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation, before being filtered and fined, and finally bottled.
History: Sicily is the third largest wine producer in Italy (the world’s largest wine producer). In recent decades the wine industry has improved, new winemakers are experimenting with less-known native varietals, and Sicilian wines have become better known and are internationally respected.
Regional Information: Sicily is located to the South of Italy, an island with its own history, language and culture. A wonderfully warm climate, and on a clear day you can see Africa. Wine is part of the heritage of the region, and is important economically for the island, alongside other traditional industries like the fishing industry and tourism.

Alcohol By Volume: 12
