Curatolo Arini Nero d’Avola DOC 2019
For nearly 150 years, Curatolo Arini has built a distinct reputation for the expression and purity of their wines. The winery is still family owned, with 140 hectares in western and central Sicily, under the leadership of Roberto and Sergio Curatolo. Winemaking is advised upon by oenologist Alberto Antonini, who has worked previously with such producers as Antinori. As the oldest, continuously family-owned winery producing Marsala, Curatolo Arini crafts both dry and sweet wines, largely from single vineyards in such regions as Salemi, Trapani and – of course – Marsala. Bright ruby red color, this 100% Nero d’Avola is produced in the appassimento style from dried Nero d’Avola grapes, adding rich plum notes, spice and ripe body to the wine. Notes of ripe cherries, plums, violets and a touch of white pepper. Juicy, with soft tannins with a fresh fruity finish. Excellent for barbeque, pasta putanessca, ripe cheeses and roasted vegetables.
