NICHÈA

DOP NOTO NERO D’AVOLA

Baroque art is the redundant exasperation of forms, a desire to make fun of everything that belongs to the classical taste. Nichea re-proposes this concept, presenting a Nero d’Avola that has its roots in good tradition but “plays”, envelops and conquers even the youngest palates.

Color: dark garnet red with violet reflections
Nose: aromatic profile of the original grape, prevalent cherry and red fruits. Light notes of vanilla and cocoa deriving from the wood.
Mouth: with a great structure but extremely balanced thanks to the soft and ripe tannins, the characteristic acidity of Nero d’Avola is pleasant, which makes its important alcohol content manageable and minimally invasive.
Aging: to be enjoyed young and up to about 8 years, discovering its evolution.
Serving temperature: 16 – 18 ° C
