Why we love it
Nero d’Avola is often associated to one dimensional, fruity wines, however, the grape, if properly trained, can produce great wines and this one from the island of Pantelleria it is one of them.
This is a very elegant Nero d'Avola, in a blind tasting you will get the grape wrong, the fruit is there, but there is much more to it. The nose is complex, with plenty of black fruit, blueberries above all, but after the first swirl, the fruity aromas give way to spices, cloves, white pepper, like an old Sicilian count, it shows its elegance and finesse.
What really surprises us is the elegance, that despite the years, is still there. This is a great Nero d’Avola wine, with a delightful freshness, and a never ending, slightly mineral, reminding of the Mediterranean Sea, finish. An outstanding Nero d’Avola.
The artisan who made it
Located right in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, on the beautiful island of Pantelleria, there is the Abraxas winery. This is a wondrous paradise, surrounded by crystal clear water and green mountains with truly fantastic weather all year round. Pantelleria is best known for its Moscato di Pantelleria, the most famous Italian dessert wine, produced with Zibibbo grapes left drying outside under the Mediterranean sun. This winery was founded in 1999 when Calogero Mannino, a former Minister of Agriculture, fell in love with the island and made the decision to begin his winemaking adventure with the intention of making wines capable of transmitting the magic of Pantelleria.
