FEUDO MACCARI

STORY

 

Nero d’Avola is the name of the grape that gives the best expression of this territory. It is a grape with ancient traditions, yet is particularly appreciated today, and it is one of the most interesting of the Sicilian varieties. Among its expressive characteristics there are the structure, richness, and roundness of its fruit, and its capability for lengthy cellaring.

VINEYARDS 

 

The estate is not only 50 hectares of vines, though some are more than 30 years old and are located on different types of soil at different elevations, guaranteeing an overall balance. The estate also has guest lodgings, homes, a tasting room, and naturally a wine cellar.

All around, nature expresses its vitality, and the volcanic soils of black and white bring forth oranges, lemons, Pachino cherry tomatoes, vegetables, and olives.

WINES

Two authentic white, Olli and Family and Friends, two different vinifications of the same grape, one in steal and one in wood. Neré is the fruit of the last vintage of Nero d’Avola, a young fresh wine, easy going, a happy glass, right for every occasion and easy to drink, it also comes in a striking and versatile Rosé di Neré version; Saia is an elegant Nero d’Avola with great charisma, explosive fruit and full-bodied smoothness; Mahȃris, a spicy Syrah with a strong Sicilian character showing great territoriality. And no line-up of traditional wines could be complete without a sweet wine, Sultana, made from Moscato di Noto grape.
