Nino Gandolfo: Unique in making the difference!

Nino Gandolfo's winery is located in the special terroir of western Sicily, on the southern slopes of the historical city Salemi. The extraordinary climate of Sicily, together with the splendid composition of the soil, the appropriate processing of the wines and the grapes, and the skilful treatments in the cellar, lead to indigenous wines of unique organoleptic qualities that are more and more appreciated on the national and international market.

The winery was established in the early 1960's by Nino's father Pietro Gandolfo, who from the beginning chose to grow international and autochthonous varieties. All these years the Gandolfo wines, full of fine fragrance and flavour, have been synonymous to quality. In 2004 Pietro's son Nino, earned the management leadership with the same passion to continuously produced the greatest Sicilian wines that nowhere else would be found.

Dry With smooth tannins, quite strong, but not sharp at all, in good balance with the alcohol. It can age until 4-5 years.

Nero d\'Avola is the most important red wine grape in Sicily and is one of Italy\'s most important indigenous varieties. It is named after Avola in the south-east of Sicily; the vine likes hot and arid climates. A well-made Nero has good dark concentration. Because of its wild character some colleagues blend their Nero d’Avola with Frappato, Nerello Mascalese, Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, to obtain less acidity, more elegance, more oral fragrance and softer fruit. This young NE however is Nero d’Avola in purity.

Syrah & Nero d’Avola IGP Terre Siciliane 2013 (75cl) – Nino Gandolfo

£14.99

Buying the case of 6 bottles you will save 10% A fresh and fruity blend of Syrah and Nero d\'Avola grapes.

Syrah (70%) and Nero d’Avola (30%), the two indigenous Sicilian red grapes, come together in this SYNE, part of the Pietro line, in honour to Nino’s father. Since their similarities they do no curse one with the other, on the contrary, they blend to unite the qualities of both, one more fresh and red fruit oriented, the other more reminding of ripe black fruit. The blend results in a wider taste, more complex and more exciting. The complexity is also due to the aging of half of the volume during almost two years in medium toasted American barrels. The already rich base now is agreeably loaded with more vanilla and wood tannins, which give the wine also a long aging potential (5-8 years).

Grillo is a white Italian wine grape variety that produces joyful, fruit-driven, fresh, aromatic wines, excellent to quench one’s thirst, a real fun wine. Sometimes you just can’t get enough of it… The grape withstands high temperatures and is widely used in Sicilian wine-making (in particular for making the best Marsala). The berries are medium large, spherical and yellow gold. In suitable soils the crop usually is plentiful. The variety is characterized by a higher sugar content compared to other white grapes, resulting in quite high alcohol, in addition to particular organoleptic properties. Although most people would prefer it young and fresh, Grillo also has aging capability.
