Fuedo Maccari Nero dAvola
Located near to the town of Avola which gave Silciy’s most famous black grape Nero dAvola its name. Fuedo Maccari Nero dAvola is fresh with bright, pure fruit flavours of cherry and berries. Approachable but with real depth and complexity.

Located in Noto on Italy’s south-eastern tip near the town of Avola, Feudo Maccari was acquired by Antonio Moretti – who also owns the Tuscan Tenuta Sette Ponti estate – and his daughter Monica in 2000. This region has extremely fertile volcanic soils, as indicated by the fertile lemon and olive groves, carob trees and flowering almonds – and here existing Alberello (bush training) plantings of Nero d’Avola and Syrah dating back to the early ‘80s (around 50 ha) were added to – with 18 hectares of Grillo planted in 2002 after extensive trials to find the most suitable whites for the region’s volcanic and limestone soils.

“This area has always been the heartland of Nero d’Avola, which here assumes a complexity, character and elegance difficult to find elsewhere… ” Gambero Rosso guide 2015
