The Morgante winery produced such an excellent Nero d’Avola! Nice and clear aromas of well-ripened fruit (black cherries and cherries) can be sensed in the bouquet, accompanied by those of mixed berries (red currants) and of vanilla. The palate has perfect harmony and softness, with red fruits in alcohol flavours and a long persistence. We paired it with a tasty ragout pasta and it was really good.


MORGANTE

We were very young and inexpert when we started, but we wanted to see where and how far our wager would lead us. We were aware that being in the deep south of Sicily would not do us any favor. Here the earth is burnt by the sun; a land without water where growing grapes requires great sacrifices. We’ve worked hard and steadily over the years to build up something and grow as entrepreneurs, trying to smooth over not only the natural difficulties presented every year by this land but also the daily operational challenges due to the small pieces of land spread over a 30 kilometer radius around Grotte, which make up our 200 hectares.
