Minini Sicilia Terre di Giumara
Nero d'Avola is the most widely planted blue grape variety in Sicily. Nero refers to the intense dark color of the skin and thus of the wine. The grape is said to have originated in the town of Avola, on the southeast coast of the island south of Syracuse.
In the hands of skilled winemakers, this grape variety produces good results all over the island. At Caruso & Minini, the grapes for this Nero d'Avola are harvested by hand and the wine ferments in steel tanks. A third of the wine is then aged in barriques for four months, while the remainder remains in steel tanks.
The result: a pleasant balance between juiciness and firmness. Combine it with classic Italian dishes such as pasta with tomato sauce, pizza or roast meat. Also nice to drink as is, with or without some salumi (Italian cold cuts) on the side.
Caruso & Minini: modern winemakers in Sicily
On the western tip of Sicily, in the province of Trapani, is the family winery Caruso & Minini. The domain is located in the heart of the region where the traditional Marsala is made, but the family focuses mainly on the production of modern white and red wines. With an eye for the age-old wine culture, contemporary, but typical Sicilian wines are made here from both indigenous and international grape varieties.
