Caruso & Minini Terre di Giumara Nero d'Avola 2012


SKU 28563


Only one third of the wine is aged in tonneaux for 4 months, just the needed time to build some structure without compromising the freshness. The wine strikes with its density and its violet tonalities. In one's nose is rich of scents, deep and pure. Mature red fruits merged with herbs and prunes. Expresses excellent varietal character, and exhibits smooth, velvety tannins and incredibly harmonious balance. Food Pairing: Impossible not to imagine a glass of Terre di Giumara Nero d'Avola when eating tomato sauce-based pasta or just grilled meat. Try it with sausage or rind ragout pasta.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Nero d'Avola Terre di Giumara opens to inky black intensity with ripe tones of cherry syrup and creme de cassis. This warm climate red is very much on the ripe and chewy side with soft fruit tones, baking spice and Spanish cedar. Terre di Giumara offers great value and a broad mouthfeel with lip-smacking sweetness on the simple finish. Drink 2014-2017.
