rapitala nero d avola
Nero d’Avola vinified on its own gives this wine an exciting red color, an aroma of ripe fruit and a typical, deep, balanced flavor. Campo Reale, named after a town close to the estate, comes from vineyards at the heart of the Tenuta Rapitalà, grown on gentle hills at 1,300 feet above sea level which, because of their history, terrain and climate, creates a Nero d’Avola with a particular elegance, rare among others of this type.
Deep ruby color with floral and cherry aromas. A firm and powerful structure, a distinct but not intrusive amount of tannin and a delicate acidity.
Wine Advocate: 87 Points
The easy-drinking Sicilia Nero d'Avola Campo Reale presents ripe and dark fruit flavors of blackberry, summer cherry and plum. You also get those varietal notes of black olive and caper that are so common to Nero d'Avola. The wine is simple, smooth and silky on the finish. Most of this wine is executed in stainless steel, with a tiny part in large oak casks. Bottle production is 220,000 units strong.
