Allumea Nero d’Avola Merlot is an organic wine from Sicily made from 70% Nero d’Avola and 30% Merlot and is produced by a company called Orion Wines.

Orion Wines is a company created to bring together interesting wines from small growers and wineries from all over Italy. The company was created by Luca Pomaro and winemaker Alessandro Michelon and Orion Wines retains complete control over the vineyards and growers they work with. The idea is to produce wines from indigenous grapes that express the typicity of the particular region where they are grown. They also produce the very popular Borgo di Trulli range of wines.

The organic vineyards for the Allumea Nero d’Avola Merlot organic wine are located in the province of Trapani in Sicily. The vineyard are approximately 25 years old. The grapes are manually harvested, usually towards the end of August for the Merlot whilst the Nero d’Avola grapes are harvested approximately 2 weeks later, around mid-September. The two different grape varieties are vinified separately but using the same technique. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 25°C for 10 days. Both remontage and delestage are carried out in the early stages of fermentation in order to achieve soft extraction of aromas and gentle tannins. After racking, malolactic bacteria are added to induce a second fermentation. The two wines are then blended in early March.

No fertilisers and no pesticides are used to make this organic white wine.

Tasting Notes

Allumea Nero d’Avola Merlot has a deep ruby-red colour. It has an intense bouquet reminiscent of wild berries, cherries and liquorice. Dark cherry, coffee, chocolate and spice flavours on the palate lead to an intense and persistent finish.

Serve With

Perfect with most pasta and meat dishes. Great with a pizza too!
