Winemaker's Notes

Fermented in stainless steel and aged in large cement vats, it has an intense ruby shade. Intense impact on the nose, with fruity notes typical of Nero d'Avola that then leave space for hints of fresh, aromatic green. Intense and concentrated in the mouth, it has impressive body sustained by a firm tannic fabric and fresh acidity. A satisfying finish. A terrific value. Nero d'Avola pairs beautifully with pasta dishes, pizza, red meat dishes and summertime BBQ.

"Ceuso's 2007 Scurati Rosso is made from the estate's youngest Nero d'Avola fruit. This compelling red from Sicily is packed with jammy black fruits, licorice, cassis and wild herbs. Plump, full-bodied and intense, it is sure to deliver plenty of enjoyment over the next few years. This is a great effort from Ceuso. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011"
-Wine Advocate

"This rich and smoky rendition of Nero d'Avola balances flavors of ripe plum and peach with fresh peppercorns. It gains intensity and depth with air, the richness pierced by mouthwatering acidity. For grilled sausages."

Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
