Valdibella Kerasos Nero DAvola 2021
It is not by chance that the makers of this tasty Sicilian red called this wine Kerasos, which means cherry in Greek. It's an apt description of the pronounced aromas of cherry and red fruits that mark the flavour profile of this sensational red. This is Nero d’Avola at its best and made from grapes grown on calcareous clay soils, high on hillside sites in Sicily where with high temperatures fluctuate between day (hot) and night (cooler) and winds help alleviate the risk of fungal issues in humid temperatures. This wine has a deep ruby colour, body to burn and structure to impress.
It's made from vineyards in the rolling hills of Camporeale countryside, between 250 and 350 meters above sea level. Grapes are all harvested by hand and transported to the winery in small baskets where they are de-stemmed and go through natural fermentation. which takes about 10 days at about 24° C. The finished wine spends six months aging in stainless steel before bottling.
It retains freshness and has deliciously ripe fruit flavours with complex velvety mouthfeel and notes of spice and Meditteranean warmth shining through in every sip.
