Grapes: Nero d'Avola blend

Style: Full-bodied dry

Another Nero d’Avola based wine made but this one is combined with a number of other red varieties.  The Milazzo winery keeps experimental fields for a number of grapes and these have been used to create Fancello.  The selection may change from year to year and may include international varieties or local Sicilian grapes such as Perricone or Nero Cappuccio.  The changing blend making this wine a fascinating moving target for the palate.  For this wine, the grapes undergo a cold soak for 24-48 hours.  The must is then pumped over the skins for about a week to extract maximum colour and flavours.  When fermentation is complete the wine rests for 12 months in stainless steel vats and final maturation is in bottle before release.  A deep ruby red with hints of violet it has aromas of cherry, plum and spice.  Smooth and rich on the palate, at 14% alcohol it is full-bodied, intense, and well-balanced with a beautiful finish.  Excellent with red meat, poultry, cheese or why not try with some typical Sicilian dishes you could prepare yourself such as pasta alla norma or arancini.
