Paccamora Paccamora Nero d`Avola

Marsala, Sicilia

Paccamora

Paccamora means ‘immediately’ in Sicilian...

The wines, with their fresh, forward fruit, are as Sicilian as the name. They are made by Alberto Antonini at Curatolo Arini. These smartly packaged wines offer great value, and a strikingly Sicilian personality.

Vineyards

The vineyards are located in Favara San Cataldo in the commune of Caltanisetta in central Sicily, at about 500m above sea level. The altitude ensures that the warm Sicilian sun is balanced with fresh, cool evenings, ensuring ideal conditions for ripening the grapes.  The vines are planted south facing, following a vertical trellis system with Guyot pruning. The soil is a sandy clay.

Vintage information

Summer was cool with temperatures below average and the unusual absence of warm southern winds caused a delay in the ripening of the grapes. These cooler temperatures ensured the grapes achieved perfect phenolic ripeness.

Vinification

After de-stemming and maceration on the skins for a period of eight days at a temperature of 24-26°C, the grapes were vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine then spent two to three months in used French and American oak barrels, providing the final blend with more structure and complexity.

Tasting Notes

Bright red in colour with hints of purple. On the nose there are notes of violet and cherry with plum and a hint of white pepper.  The palate has soft tannins and a long elegant finish.
