Nero d'Avola Terre Sicilane - La Mura
La Mura Nero d'Avola is a tremendously characterful red made from organically grown Nero d'Avola grapes on the sun-drenched island of Sicily. It is soft, very easy drinking, packed with red berry fruit flavours and just the thing to wash down a plate of pasta or some lamb chops. Organic certified and suitable for vegans.
Subregion: Marsala and Salemi
Grape Variety: Nero d'Avola
Bottle Size: 75cl
Style: Rustic and fruity
Drink With: Lamb chops done on the barbecue or pasta with a meat sauce
After hand harvesting of the grapes, the bunches were de-stemmed and gently crushed before fermentation was started with selected yeast strains. Malolactic fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks but no oak was used for ageing, thus retaining plenty of ripe, red fruit flavours.
Why we like this wine
It is often the simplest things in life that give us the most pleasure. This is certainly true here. An organic wine at a very affordable price, fruit-driven with no harsh tannins to mask the freshness. It's simple ideal when paired with a pasta dish or you can even drink it by itself and slightly chilled too in the summertime.
