Description

Nero d'Avola - Syrah DOC 2021 / Villa Carumè / Sicily

Red wine from Italy

The Villa Carumè is a brand of the Assuli winery and is in the tranquil town of Mazara del Vallo between the cities of Marsala and Agrigento in western Sicily. Over time, a beautiful company site has developed here, which emerged from a half-timbered complex from the 18th century. Surrounded by rolling hills, modern functionality is combined with a strong connection to the territory.

The grapes for Villa Carumè's Nero d'Avola - Syrah come from vineyards located in the heart of western Sicily, between the towns of Mazara del Vallo and Trapani. Here there is an insular-Mediterranean climate with mild winters and breezy summers, which is perfect for viticulture. The vines are planted using the spur-cordon system, with medium to high plant density, on clay soils with a good lime content and a balanced content of organic elements and nitrogen.

This Sicilian red wine is a blend of the two famous grape varieties Nero d'Avola and Syrah. The Nero d'Avola is a high-quality autochthonous grape variety of Sicilian origin, which is now widespread throughout southern Italy. Because of her excellent qualities, she is also called "Principe Siciliano" (Sicilian prince). The city of Avola is located between Syracuse and Noto. This variety is one of the traditional grape varieties of Sicily and is also known under the name "Calabrese", which may indicate the origin of the grape. Syrah is a low yielding but high-quality red grape variety that probably originally came from the Middle East and became famous through its widespread cultivation in France. The vine has meanwhile gained such great importance and is so coveted that it has risen to the nobility of the wine world and is referred to as a noble vine. Syrah wines usually have a strong currant aroma. With normal mash fermentation, the vine produces a dark-colored wine with a high tannin content, which requires long bottle aging to reduce astringency.

The grapes are harvested in mid to late August each year, with strict attention being paid to the ripeness of the grapes. The vinification begins with the destemming and soft pressing of the grapes. Depending on the vintage, fermentation then lasts ten to fifteen days at a controlled fermentation temperature of 26°C. Constant pumping takes place during the extraction. The subsequent malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks lasts three to four months before this Sicilian wine has to rest in its bottle for at least three to four months.

The violet cuvée wine Nero d'Avola - Syrah DOC produces intense aromas of ripe red fruits on the nose. With your eyes closed, you might think you are standing next to Mediterranean bushes. On the palate, this red wine is dry, full, soft, and pleasantly vinous. He doesn't play too much in the foreground and is balanced. Its finish is spicy and long.

At an optimal drinking temperature of around 17 to 18°C, this harmonious red wine from Sicily goes perfectly with risotto, pasta al forno, middle-aged cheeses and roasts with potatoes. Generally, an excellent accompaniment to meat from the oven and spicy dishes.

Grape variety

NERO D'AVOLA

NERO D'AVOLA is a high-quality autochthonous grape variety of Sicilian origin, which is now widespread throughout southern Italy. Because of her excellent qualities, she is also called "Principe Siciliano" (Sicilian prince). The city of Avola is located between Syracuse and Noto. This variety is one of the traditional grape varieties of Sicily and is also known under the name "Calabrese", which may indicate the origin of the grape. The NERO D'AVOLA is rarely offered as a pure wine - if it is, as in our case, it is usually deep dark and concentrated, without lacking the necessary acidity - but often in a blend with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah.

SYRAH

SYRAH is a low yielding but high-quality red grape variety that probably originally came from the Middle East and became famous through its widespread cultivation in France. The vine has meanwhile gained such great importance and is so coveted that it has risen to the nobility of the wine world and is referred to as a noble vine. Syrah wines usually have a strong currant aroma. With normal mash fermentation, the vine produces a dark-coloured wine with a high tannin content, which requires long bottle aging to reduce astringency
