Donnafugata Sherazade Nero d’Avola Sicilia DOC

2018

In a Nutshell

Velvety smooth Nero d'Avola from the Rallo family.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant ruby red with purple hues, Sherazade has a bouquet of fragrant red plum and cherry with light spicy scents. The palate is soft and enveloping with smooth tannins and a spicy fruit profile that reflect the nose.

Production Notes

After gentle pressing, the must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks with a 6-8 day maceration on the skins at 24-25°C. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine remained in tank for four months before bottling. It then spent almost three months in bottle before release.

Press Quotes & Awards

Bright deep red. Very perfumed and precise nose of violets, black cherry and delicate herbs. Then juicy and fresh, with outstanding sugar-acid-tannin balance on the crisp, long and lively finish. Delicious, lovely medium-bodied, very fresh red that can take a little chilling. Maybe the best Sherazade ever. 91 points.
