Firriato's Chiaramonte Nero d'Avola presents itself in a powerful ruby red colour with light violet shades and reveals a fragrant, clear fruitiness to the nose, dominated above all by plums, blackberries, black cherries and blueberries. The bouquet is further enhanced by spicy notes of cloves, black pepper, liquorice, dark chocolate and oriental spices.
On the palate, the Firriato Chiaramonte Nero d'Avola wonderfully combines its power received from the Sicilian sun with expressive softness. This red wine from the deepest south of Italy reveals a deep, flattering and at the same time determined character, underlined by silky soft and appealing tannins.
Vinification of Chiaramonte Nero d'Avola from Firriato
The grapes for this classic Sicilian red wine are gently pressed immediately after harvesting and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the Chiaramonte Nero d'Avola matures for 6 months in American oak barrels and then for a further 3 months in the bottle. This allows it to refine perfectly.
Food recommendation for Firriato Chiaramonte Nero d'Avola
We recommend this red wine from Sicily with pasta with meat or tomato sauces or with classic southern Italian pizza.
