"Porticciolo" Nero d'Avola Merlot DOC 2022 - Rudině

When the prince of native Sicilian grape varieties meets a true world champion of pleasantness like Merlot, the result can only be exceptional. Such is the case with this Porticciolo, SIcilia DOC proposed by Feudo Agricolo Rudinì. In this case, the proposed bland sees 60% Nero d'Avola grapes, from the beautiful vineyards of Pachino, and Merlot for the remainder. The grapes are harvested during the month of September. Delivered to the cellar, they are destemmed and crushed. The must obtained is then sent for fermentation, after which the wine undergoes a rapid maturation period of about three months in steel tanks. After bottling, the wine remains a few months in the cellar for further ageing before being put on the market. Structured and elegant, like the land where it was born, in the glass it has a beautiful deep red colour with violet hues. On the nose, this red expresses the warmth of south-eastern Sicily, with hints of raspberry and vanilla notes. Excellent with red meat and game.

Long before the advent of the cherry tomato, the Pachino area was characterised by the green expanses of bush-trained vineyards. And the story of Saro Di Pietro, the 'cellarman', founder of the Rudinì winery, is linked to this very land. In 1969, Saro was a must seller. As a taster, sitting at the 'scagno' in the central square of Pachino, he judged the musts of local winemakers which, once 'promoted', could take the road to northern Italy where they were used to enrich local wines. In 1972, Saro Di Pietro bought the Rudinì palmento from Count Corrado Moncada di Paternò and built a modern wine cellar there, focusing everything on Nero d'Avola. A more than apt choice, we might say today.... After all, Pachino has always been considered the cradle of Nero d'Avola and an area of origin of great red wines. An area that enjoys absolutely unique pedoclimatic conditions. Located at the southernmost point of Europe, at the southernmost tip of Sicily, facing the Mediterranean and the African coast. Rudinì draws its grapes from over 200 hectares of the most qualified vineyards around Pachino. In addition to the prince of Sicilian wines, Nero d'Avola, the Rudinì wine range includes Chardonnay, Inzolia, Syrah and Merlot. International grape varieties that have, however, found an optimal habitat in Sicily.
