Professional Wine Reviews for Feudo Maccari Nero D'avola 2014

Rated 95 by Beverage Tasting Institute
Coal roasted earth and baked cherries are deeply embedded in the aromatic profile. Fruit and earth combine as flavors of red plum and earthy sage descend on the palate. Turmeric and mace are rich and spicy on the tongue. (Ultimate Beverage Challenge)

Winery Feudo Maccari

Varietal: Nero D'avola

Sicily is one of the world's most ideal grape growing regions, as it benefits from all the beauty and heat of a Mediterranean climate, and has mineral rich volcanic soils perfect for viticulture. One of the key varietals grown in Sicily is the Nero d'Avola, an indigenous grape which has become a highly important fruit for the Italian wine culture. In recent years, it has had plenty of success in various New World countries, as it thrives in hot and arid conditions and produces big, juicy, fruit-forward wines with plenty of pepper and spice notes. In Sicily, the Nero d'Avola grape is often used in the production of fortified wines such as Marsala, but it is most well loved in the still wines made from it, as they tend to be packed full of excellent flavors ideal for pairing with a range of foods.

Region: Sicily

Sicily has been an important wine region for thousands of years, with the ancient Greek settlers being among the first to discover its remarkable aptitude for viticulture. It isn't difficult to understand why they were impressed, and nor is it hard to understand why the island's wine industry continues to boom to this day. The climate on Sicily is ideal for wine production – sunshine beating down on the vineyards almost all year round, and a highly fertile volcanic soil produced from such magnificent peaks as Mount Etna. Sicily's vineyards are mostly used for the production of sweet dessert wines and fortified wines, such as the famous wine of Marsala, but the variety found across the island is impressive, and results in a great range of dry white and red wines packed full of exciting fruit flavors.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
