Nero d'Avola Aria Siciliana 2012 - Costantino Wines

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

“The team of My VitiBox became bigger since when we welcomed Giorgia, a young Italian lady. I took the opportunity to turn to Sicily this month to let you discover an Italian grape variety, the Nero d’Avola. This varietal has particularly adapted to the Sicilian volcanic soil. This wine made by the Costantino family is characterised by interesting candied fruit notes and it will surprise you with its long aftertaste."
 

Terroir

Costantino’s vineyards are located in the northwest of western Sicily at 15 km from the coast. They extend from 250 up to 600 meters above sea level and receive all the benefits of the Mediterranean Sea-breeze. Soils are clayey, calcareous and basic, properties that allow the development of high quality wines.

lecepage Grape Variety

Nero d’Avola is a renowned Italian grape variety typical from Sicily. It is usually compared to the syrah and it produces strong wines, with a good balance between acidity and alcohol, and it has nice aromas of red fruits.

lemillesime Vintage

Even if 2012 was warmer and drier than usual, the winery Costantino suffered less than others thanks to its clayey soil. The little humidity rate prevented grapes from mildew.

lerecoltant Winemaker

Mr Costantino likes saying that his ambition is “to capture flavours, smells and authenticity of sicilian products”. Established in1960 by Papà Onofrio, also called ”Nonò”, they are the third generations of winegrowers still passionate about vineyards and wine.
