Producer Feudo Arancio consists in fact of two estates, with red varieties planted
at Sambuca di Sicilia in the northwest of the island, and whites in Acate
near its southern coast. The range is united both by its beautiful Moorishinfluenced
labels, and also the quality credentials of the owner, the
exemplary Gruppo Mezzacorona.
Vineyard This wine is produced from selected Nero d’Avola vineyards, planted on
clay soils in Sambuca di Sicilia, in the province of Agrigento. The vines
are Espalier trained, with an average density of 4500 plants per hectare.
Winery Following de-stemming, fermentation took place over six to eight days at
22-24ºC. The wine was aged for six months in French oak barriques.
Taste This deeply coloured Nero d’Avola shows lush notes of blackcurrant,
wild strawberry and crunchy pomegranite. The palate is soft, round and
velvety.
