Morgante IGT Nero d‘Avola 2009

The Morgante winery is a family owned and run business on the tiny island of Sicily. Their vineyard spans 200 hectares with 100% of the production used to come from a single variety, Nero d’Avola, which now spans Frappato, Moscato, Merlot, Cabernet, Inzolia and Grecanico. The added options allows for great blending choices.

If you are after medium bodied goodness with a slightly sour profile, look no further. There is a slightly herbal note mixed with fruitiness so it really offers everything in the one wine. From a textural perspective the wine possess silkiness with great acidity and a gruff tannin dryness running underneath. This ticks a low of boxes for style and Nero d’Avola flavour which would work so well in the weather that we are expecting to have over this summer.
