Rosé IGP 2016

Feudo Maccari

Rosé IGP 2016

Region: Italy / Sicily / Noto
Grapes: 100% Nero d'Avola

Nero d’Avola vines are 25-30 years old, planted with a southern exposure at 80 meters above sea level. Yields are 6.6 tons/acre, to encourage aromatic depth and flavor complexity. In the spring, the vines are pruned to one bud per plant, and in June/July, a green harvest eliminates lesser grapes. Twenty days prior to harvest, there's an additional cluster thinning, or a selection of the best grapes in the bunch. To develop superior aromas and texture, the wine is aged in steel tanks rather than oak to retain the grape's fresh, crisp and fruity characters.

harvest note

Sicily saw what could be described as the “perfect summer” in 2016. Rainfall was at a minimum and temperatures were not as hot as normal. These elements made for a perfect maturation, giving the red varietals a great balance and tannic structure.

tasting note

Cherry colored wine with an explosion of floral and fruit scents of ripe pears and cherries. Fresh and juicy on the palate, tasty with light tannins.

food pairing

Outstanding with fish dishes enriched with Mediterranean spices and herbs. Intriguing with pizza.
