Description

The grapes for the Principi di Butera - Nero D’Alvola wine were harvested in the third week of September. Fermentation lasted 8 days at a temperature of 28° - 30° C. (82° - 86° F.). The wine matured for 12 months, 20% in 350-liter (92 gallon) tonneaux and 80% in 60 hectoliter (1,320 gallon) oak barrels, followed by a further period of bottle ageing.

Tasting Notes

  • Nose Nose
    Broad and persistent, in which one finds, apart from almond blossom notes, intense spicy hints and red berries.
  • Palate
    Dry, well-structured and extremely rounded, it offers very complex fruit flavors on the palate. These are reminiscent of cherries preserved in brandy, mingled with a very appealing spiciness that lingers on the finish.
  • Appearance Appearance
    A brilliant, fairly deep ruby-red.

Sommelier Review

“The Principi di Butera Sicilia Nero d'Avola is a balanced but bold interpretation from Sicily with black fruit aromas of prune, plum and blackberry tart. Great introduction to grape which grows only there.”
