If I had to choose between the nuances of Nero d’Avola vinified in Rosa, this would be the perfect wine. The color is pink, the result of the work wisely dosed in the good vinification of the “prince” of Sicily. The scents are immediately floral with a bouquet of fresh roses just in bloom, followed by sweet and sensual Mediterranean notes. On the palate it is direct, sweet, soft but with the right character, it goes well with consistent fish-based foods, white meats and excellent by the pool with long-lasting friends.
One of the best, if not the best, of this edition of the 2020-2021 NDA Guide, Nero Maccarj 2017 by Cantina Gulfi, son of a territory like Pachino in the province of Syracuse in the most expressive district for Nero D’Avola. The mastery of micro-vinification by vine gives all the intensity to this wine which, even with a few years, promises a respectable longevity. Intense, complex on the nose in its red fruits surrounded by ripe black cherry and spicy balsamic notes. On the palate all the power and quality that only the Nero d’Avola “Prince” can give… to the health of those who can enjoy this nectar.
As a child my grandfather took me close to the districts to make me understand where the good wine came from, together with him I tasted the ripe grains and I dirtied my hands with an intense red. When passing “E Baruni”, the district located close to Pachino in the province of Syracuse, the taste was different, more intense, the grapes ripened with a greater polyphenolic charge. Today this interpretation is found in the splendid wine of Gulfi the Nero Baronj which, with the separate vinification by districts, manages to bring out the best conditions of this land kissed by God. You can enjoy all of this by tasting this wonderful Nero d’Avola.
The wines of Cantina Gulfi are the representation of Nero D’Avola, it is well known. Characteristics of the typical Nero d’Avola, more and more accentuated after a few years, in our case this of Contrada Bufaleffi in the Pachino area in the province of Syracuse, takes on characteristics that can only be traced by visiting the intense and dark soils such as those of territory in which it is born. The nose is compact, balsamic, full of ripe berries wrapped in dry aromatic herbs and a note of sweet and juicy black cherry. The taste is “libidinous” but do not take it as any sin but a sin to enjoy for all the senses in every glass.
Chapeau again at the Gulfi Winery for the interpretation of “Cru” in that area highly suited to Nero d’Avola. We are at the gates of Pachino in the province of Syracuse, in that southernmost area of Tunis which has always been the land of intense and unique “Blacks”. This Nero d’Avola, in the San Lorenzo area, almost at the sea level, with a strong brackish influence represents its territory like never before. The wine of a few years, let’s taste a 2017, takes on consistency, becomes intense, persistent, expressive, both to the nose and to the taste, a glass to drink in company and on great occasions of memorable meals.
It is well known that Cantina Gulfi is synonymous with Nero D’Avola, every year it expresses the best of this vine, and proves its unconditional love for its winemaking. Intense, ripe olfactory notes, made of wild berries and blackberries, Mediterranean spices and balsamic notes create a whole that overwhelms the senses on the nose and prepares the mouth for this delight. The long, intense, persistent palate creates the right prerequisite for a glass to be tasted in sweet company and to accompany a dinner based on succulent red meats throughout the meal.
