Feudo Montoni, Nero d'Avola 'Vrucara' 2018Regular price €57.00
The last word in elegance and mellow refinement from Feudo Montoni.
Fine Italian tailoring. The cut! The finish! The style!
This superb Nero d'Avola is made from fruit grown in the Vrucara cru of Feudo Montoni, pre-phylloxera vines whose ancestors are mentioned in records from 1590.
Intense, persistent aromas of earth, plums and dark berries mingle with notes of roses, vanilla and hints of eucalyptus and licorice suggestive of the vruca, a vineyard weed of the tamarisk family, which gives the area and the wine its name.
Long ageing lends subtlety and finesse to this soft, velvety wine, sustained by delicate acidity and gentle supporting tannins.
Give this very special wine an hour, preferably two, in a decanter before serving.
