Region: Campobello di Licata, Sicily
Of noble Agrigento Lineage, the Bonetta family has been farming along the southern coast of Sicily’s Agrigento region – known as the “valley of the Temples” – since before modern records were kept. A modern facility & approach are utilized in tending to the Bonetta family’s ancient vineyards, some of which are literally centuries old. The vineyards are planted to indigenous varietals such as Nero d’Avola, Insolia & Grillo, as well as Chardonnay & Syrah. Winemaker Carmello Bonetta produces tiny volumes of hand-crafted wines which display regional & varietal typicality, as well as balanced and profoundly nuanced aromas and flavours.
This beautiful Summer wine is made from 100% Nero d’Avola. It has a lovely vibrant bouquet, dull of pink roses and strawberry. On palate it is, as expected, very fresh, but with good vinous structure from three hours skin contact. Long dry finish.
Serve with shellfish platters, creamy fish pasta or grilled prawns.
