Caruso & Minini boasts a history that harks back to the late 1800’s always following respect for nature and the environment. In 2004, Stefano Caruso, 3rd generation winemaker, joined forces with Mario Minini of Lombardy to launch the present-day winery. That's how this Nero d'Avola DOC made with organic grapes was born.
The 2018 Nero d'Avola is full bodied, well balanced, rich of tannins, has nice depth and structure. It's a bright, fruity version of Nero d’Avola boasting flavors of fig, plum, raspberry, black cherry jam, vanilla, blackberry, cherry, tobacco and a lovely volcanic earthiness. The finish has excellent persistent length. Ideal with roast meats, seasoned cheeses and mushroom dishes.
