Description

Caruso & Minini Naturalmente Bio Nero d’Avola 2019 looks like a hearty red wine with its deep red colour but it is a relatively light and amazingly fruity red wine. Nero d’Avola is a Sicilian grape variety well suited to the heat of the island and produces mainly soft fruity red wines like this one from family-run winery, Caruso & Minini, which is certified organic and has been producing wine for four generations.

 

The wine has a captivating bouquet of sun-ripened berries, ripe plums and dark cherries with a subtle floral undertone, reminiscent of violets. Just 50% of Caruso & Minini Naturalmente Bio Nero d’Avola 2019 is aged in oak but it is for just two months and in very large oak barrels so that the influence is more on the body and texture of the wine than on the flavours. Fruits dominate the palate, mainly black fruits, blackberries, mulberries, plums and blueberries, with hints of raspberries and liquorice. As the wine evolves in the glass, subtle earthy undertones emerge, evoking images of the Sicilian terroir from which it hails. The fresh acidity of the wine balances with those lush fruit flavours and leaves you wanting more. Medium-bodied, this wine’s tannins are very soft contributing to its velvety texture.

 

All in all Caruso & Minini Naturalmente Bio Nero d’Avola 2019 is a very easy-to-drink, organic red wine that is very food-friendly. It has a long fruity finish of ripe berries that linger on the palate, accented by a hint of spice that adds a touch of warmth. This wine is a testament to the exceptional quality of organic winemaking in Sicily. It marries the vibrant fruit flavours of the Nero d’Avola grape with the authenticity of the island’s unique terroir.

How to enjoy

As the tannins are light and the fruit flavours dominate, this is a red wine that could be consumed with fish without overpowering it. However this wine has a savouriness that would also match well with tomato-based sauces, Italian grilled vegetables and with a favourite of mine, Melanzane alla Parmigiana.

 

Serve at: 7 – 12°C

Producer's Notes

“Fruity and vibrant Nero d’Avola finds a balance of soft tannins and a harmonic finish. Aromas and flavours of violets, dried herbs, juicy plum and blueberries. Fresh and supple, with the sweet fruit leading to a crisp long finish.”

Awards

17 points – JancisRobinson.com – Jul 2020
“Juicy mulberry nose, turning a bit more savoury on the palate. Roasted mulberries, mushrooms in tamari, balsamic notes and a wonderful wild bramble-berry character. So juicy and jiving with spectacularly fresh acidity. The tannins are little more firm than on their Naturalmente Bio Perricone, but they’re perfectly pitched. Wow, these Caruso & Minini wines have never been better! VGV” (Very good value)
