Gulfi "Neromaccarj" Nero d'Avola '15

The Nero d’Avola from Pachino is a special story: Pachino is the most southern point of Sicily, which is lower in latitude than Tunisia. Pachino sits on tectonic plates, in conjunction of both Europe and Africa. So the layers here provide a lot of soil types -- limestone, red clay, with some iron. Convinced that Pachino is the spiritual home of Nero d’Avola, Gulfi has established single vineyard “contrada” wines. Each of these contrada, or cru, wines has a distinct personality -- some more masculine, others more elegant -- which ultimately shake up what we might think about Nero d’Avola. They want to eventually achieve singularity with Pechino and Nero d'Avola, the way one thinks of Barolo and Nebbiolo. The "Neromaccarj" is referred to as the "wild one," due to its complexity, where every sip reveals something new, as it is constantly evolving and pleasantly surprising. This comes from old vines of over 50 years old, from the Maccari district, aiding to its rich, distinct personality. Expect notes of spiced plum, raspberry, violets and hints of herbs and vanilla, encased in perfect integration with polished tannins. Drink now through 2035.
