Rossojbleo Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC BIO
Rossojbleo by Gulfi winery is a young Sicilian Nero d'Avola of slight structure, from organic cultivation, which intends to propose a particularly approachable interpretation of the Nero d'Avola of south-eastern Sicily, while retaining its full varietal expression and territorial identity. It is a blend of Nero d'Avola grapes coming partly from the Chiaramonte Gulfi vineyards near Iblei Mounts (Ragusa), and partly from Ragoleti. In both cases, soils are calcareous with a good supply of clay rich in iron oxides. The two climatic contexts are significantly different and the fusion of the two crops generates a particularly balanced and complete base wine. The grapes are harvested after mid-September and after a short maceration at controlled temperatures, the malolactic fermentation takes place in steel. The wine is bottled and realeased after a few months of aging in the bottle.
Bright and brilliant ruby red coulor, with a deep hues in the middle of the glass. A wine that reveals the complexity and depth of the superior selections. Soft and comfortable bouquet of ripe red and black fruit, delicate spices and bitter cocoa. The taste is ample and juicy, with fresh acidity and lively flavor, which blend perfectly with the abundant and persistent fruity component. It is a ready-to-drink wine, to be drunk young, not demanding, but able to evolve for a few years in the bottle. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 16 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
Gulfi's Rossojbleo is easy to pair. You can combine it with pasta dishes, as well as pizza marinara (tomato and garlic). It is also suitable for pairing with appetizers, cold cuts, fish dishes with a slightly aromatic seasoning. Finally, the "autumnal" pairing with grilled chestnuts is intriguing.
Naturalness is the principle that has always guided the work of Gulfi winery. This is the same “naturalness” that distinguishes these wines, which are the fruit of traditional and bio-organic winegrowing and non-invasive vinification.The history of Gulfi was born in 1995, when Vito Catania inherited part of the family's lands from his father, giving rise to a pioneering project to enhance Nero d'Avola grape variety and rediscover the prestigious crus of Pachino, in south-eastern Sicily.
