San Marzano Rari Nero d'Avola DOP 2020

San Marzano Rari Nero d'Avola is a dense, drinkable, full and spicy red. Makes an appearance in intense, radiant ruby ​​red colour. The nose opens as a bouquet of black cherries, raspberry jelly and complementing hints of cocoa and vanilla. Complex flavours on the full-bodied and semi-dry palate with layers of blackberry, sour cherry, vanilla and pepper spice. Closes in a long and harmonious spicy finish.

100% Nero d'Avola. The fruit comes from vineyards with old plants managed by contractually bound winegrowers in north-western Sicily, in the hills around Gibellina and in the valley near Belice. The Nero d'Avola vines grow 200 metres above sea level on rich limestone and clay soils.

Selection of the grapes and vinification by the oenologists of Cantine San Marzano.
