“The Terre Sicilian Nero d'Avola IGT of the prestigious Sicilian winery Cusumano is a great red wine, fruit grape Nero d'Avola, coming from the vineyards of St. James, near Butera, in the province of Caltanissetta. This special Nero d'Avola is part of the line that the cellar dedicated to the single variety. A true classic defined by James Suckling Guide as an exceptional wine. A terroir wine that represents the Sicilian wine, a Nero d'Avola outcome of a harvest which takes place in early September. After harvesting the grapes are left to cold macerate in the juice for 2 days, then it follows a fermentation in steel, after which the Sicilian Nero d'Avola IGT Terre mature in the same containers for 5 months. The result is very Mediterranean wine, a red medium-bodied, soft and comfortable, a label that emerges for its freshness and its roundness.”

“A red that paired extremely well with the food. Cusumano, my favourite wines.
Red intense cherry colour and very high layer. The smell of red fruits in the Cusumano Nero d'Avola is quite obvious. Well-balanced, with a good end.”
