Contrade Bellusa Nero d'Avola is grown on organic vineyards in Sicily on soils consisting of calcareous clay with a rich iron component. A rich, ruby red in colour with violet reflections and a pronounced nose of dark cherries and bramble fruits. The palate is medium bodied with juicy flavours of cherry jam, raspberries, and a spicy finish. Excellent balance of acidity, ripe fruits and soft tannins.
Volcanic soils and a maritime influence combine to impart a distinct elegance and mineral character upon the island's wines. Notable for its range of local varieties with Nero d'Avola making reliable, fleshy red wines.
Serve with traditional Sicillian dishes such as Caponata or spaghetti alla Norma and seasoned cheeses.
