"Good medium red-ruby. Deeply pitched, liqueur-like aromas of red cherry nectar, cocoa, coffee, smoke, and nuts, with a balsamic nuance adding appeal. Then also rich in the mouth, but livelier and fresher than the nose, with the sappy, seamless raspberry and strawberry flavors nicely framed by powdery tannins. Insidiously sweet and filled in, the serious fine-grained tannins saturate the cheek and gums, closing long with a peppery element."~ID
"Nero d'Avola is the grape variety that best represents Sicily's winemaking identity. This wine, obtained from grapes scrupulously chosen from the estate's finest selection, expresses an absolute purity, an extraordinary elegance and a great aging potential."
"Deep ruby red. Complex and intense nose with notes of red fruit, currants, blueberries and cherries, together with dark spicy and toasty sensations coming from the aging in oak. Rich, structured and velvety sip with a polished aftertaste of fruit and sweet spice. Ideal with roasted and braised meats, game and aged cheeses. 14,000 bottles produced."~Winery Notes
Feudi Del PisciottoView all from Feudi Del Pisciotto
"Feudi del Pisciotto consists of 82 acres of vineyards planted in 2002 that sit at 820 feet above sea level just under four miles as the crow flies from the sea. The property, therefore, benefits from two climatic moderators: the elevation, which allows the vineyards to enjoy the sea breeze, and the sea itself, a great mitigator of temperature. Located in the triangle created by Piazza Almerina (known for its extraordinary and intact Roman villa), Caltagirone (famous for its ceramics) and Vittoria (famous for Cerasuolo di Vittoria, the only Sicilian DOCG), the vineyards of Feudi del Pisciotto dedicate half their vines to the red king of the island, Nero d'Avola, and half to international varieties such as Cabernet, Merlot, Semillon and Gewürztraminer. Inside the winery, Feudi del Pisciotto prides itself on combining history with high technology in the cellar in order to reach the highest levels of the Sicilian wine production. Part of the Pisciotto reserve, famous for its beauty, the abundance of cork oaks and the presence of many other species of vegetation, Feudi del Pisciotto also enjoys relics of it long history, including an extraordinary millstone that was once used by the Romans to make wine. Inspired to preserve the rich history that surrounds them, Feudi del Pisciotto collaborated some of Italy's finest fashion designers, including Versace, Valentino, Missoni, Carolina Marengo, Alberta Ferretti, Gianfranco Ferré and Giambattista Valli, to create the packaging for Pisciotto's designer wine line. A portion of the proceeds from these modern wines is donated to the restoration of fine Sicilian art."
