Rudini ‘Campanile’ Nero d’Avola 2017

13.99 11.19

  • 20% off Italy


Sicilian Nero d’Avola produced in a lighter, fresher style that suits summer drinking and lighter food choices. This is completely unoaked, steel fermented and matured, so all about fresh fruit expression. Bright and light to medium-bodied, the nose leaps forward with red cherries, plum, raspberry, vanilla and smokey notes of barbecue. Despite the relatively light body, the palate is full and lush, with plum and black cherry to the fore, a creamy mid-palate of raspberry ripple, and tasty hints of vanilla and cola bottle on the finish. This is seriously, dangerously quaffable.

Producer: Vini Rudini

The story of Rudini begins with its founder, Saro di Pietro, inheriting his passion for wine from his father. In 1969 Saro became a must seller and as a 'taster’, flanked by an accountant, he would evaluate the wines brought by their winemakers to the central square of Pachino. He became responsible for sorting wines for export to Genoa and then between Piedmont and France and buying the Rudini property in 1972 paved the way for him to create his own winery. By focusing vineyard plantings and wine selection on Nero d’Avola, Saro contributed to the revival and resurgence of the native grape in this key part of Sicily. The vineyards, amongst the most southerly in Italy, are located around Pachino in the south-east corner of Sicily, just 15 miles from the city of Avola that gave its name to the island's most important grape. Today, Saro’s son, Giuseppe and his wife Stefania continue the family business, having recently fully modernised the winery and vineyard management.
