Morgante Nero d'Av./Don Antonio 2009

Morgante Nero d'Av./Don Antonio 750ml 2009   
Sku: 9920

Although the Morgante family has been growing quality grapes for nearly 40 years in Sicily, the production and sale of wine under their own label is a relatively recent venture. However, Don Antonio, named after the estate’s owner, was an immediate success in the market. This hearty red is made from the finest Nero d”Avola grapes grown in the estate’s oldest vineyards.

Tasting notes
Don Antonio offers layered aromas of ripe black cherries, raspberries, and wildflowers, followed by spicy notes of chocolate, black pepper, and cinnamon. It is a silky yet muscular red, with lush fruit flavors beautifully integrated into a velvety texture defined by ripe, fine-grained tannins.

Wine maker notes
Don Antonio is a fine Nero d’Avola, with a deep purple colour suggesting an aroma of voluptuous ripe cherries, rose, sweet spices, liquorice and cocoa. It is a silky red wine but with an imposing structure enhancing a blend of persuasive and refined tannins Don Antonio is a perfect match for matured cheeses, roasted red meat and braised wild game.

Technical notes
Varietal Composition 100% Nero d’Avola

Other text
In Sicily, Nero d”Avola is the undisputed red grape for wines of excellence, and it is this vine that the Morgante family has always cultivated. All aspects of production - from vineyard to cellar - are rigorously controlled by every member of the family, all of whom are dedicated to making wines of the highest possible quality.
