Corvo Rosso IGT, Duca Di Salaparuta 2016

Duca Di Salaparuta


Tried after we drank a bottle of the Corvo Bianco, this is an interesting wine, its a blend of two of Sicily's most well know varieties Nero d’Avola and Nerello Mascalese, its dry and very fruity, a very nice every day red.

Corvo Rosso, a classic Sicilian wine, is produced from Sicilian vines cultivated on warm, sunny hills. Aged in oak barrels it is distinguished by its round, full-bodied and persistent flavour. Together with Corvo Bianco, Corvo Rosso was the first wine to be bottled in Sicily, back in 1824, and is now the best known red wine in Italy thanks to its excellent quality/price ratio and consistent quality.

Production area
Central and eastern Sicily in the provinces of Agrigento and Caltanissetta, on soils and in microclimates with a traditional vocation for quality red grapes

Varieties
 Nero d’Avola and Nerello Mascalese.

Description
When you pour this, the lively ruby-red with light garnet red highlights are show, to the nose you get an intense, complex, fruity of morello cherry Bouquet followed by a dry, full, pleasantly winy, balanced, full-bodied and persistent.

Food Pairings
Excellent with grilled meat, roast meats and medium-aged cheeses.
