Cantina Marilina ‘Sikelè’ Nero d'Avola 2015

Updated: Jan 27

An energetic and fresh wine on day 25 of furlough!

Purchased: Domestique Wines ($18)

Winery: Cantina Marilina

Winemaker: Marilina & Federica Paternò

Varietal: Nero d'Avola

Appellation: Sicily, Italy

Farming: Organic

The Deets:

Black cherry, tobacco + wild herbs (think, Ricola) are the stars of the wine. Bright acidity and smooth tannins are the supporting actors. Sikelè Nero d'Avola is aged in concrete, which captures the freshness of the fruit. Marilina and Federica Paternò, make natural wine that is approachable.

Pairing: Pasta Bolognese with Turkey and Calabrian Chile Peppers
