Maria Costanza Rosso
Grapes: Nero d'Avola
Style: Full-bodied dry
We are indeed lucky have access to the products of this winery and we are the sole importers into Ireland. For over 25 years Milazzo wines have been winning prestigious awards on the international stage. This wine is one of them. Nero d’Avola is one of the most important indigenous grape varieties in Italy and does well in hot, dry climates. It is no surprise, therefore, that it thrives in Sicily where it is arguably the best-known native variety. The Maria Costanza Red from this organic wine-making family is made 100% from this grape and has been a multiple award winner over the years including a gold medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles. Aged for around 36 months in barriques of different woods and also in stainless steel vats, it receives a minimum of 6 months of final maturation in bottle. With an intense dark red colour there are notes of red fruit, blackberries, cherries and spices. At 14% alcohol it is a powerful, full-bodied wine with great structure, soft, silky tannins and a long finish. It will go well with pasta, lamb or other meat dishes as well as cheeses and will age for 5-10 years.
