Why we love it
The Kuddia del Moro is a particular vine because the chosen clone is also quite special.
Forget all Nero d'Avolas you tried so far, and be ready to be surprised. Forget the Nero d'Avola where the fruit is overpowering or too jammy, this wine will really show you what the grape can achieve. An elegant Nero d'Avola, with a complex nose, with fruit and spices, with hints of cherries, in the mouth it is warm, smooth, lively, with black fruit flavour with a never ending, slightly mineral, finish. Outstanding!
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.
