2015 Cusumano Sicilia Noà
Really a top wine this Noà from the Sicilian winery Cusumano . Robert Parker also enjoyed this wonderful wine. Volume 2013 received a nice score of 92 points. This red Noà is made from 40% Nero d'Avola , 30% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from vines with an age of around 16 years. The Nero d'Avola vineyard is oriented to the south, that of the Merlot to the south-east and that of the Cabernet Sauvignon to the south, south-east, carefully selected exhibitions that match the grape variety in question. The production takes place in Tenuta Presti e Pregni, Monreale. Like all grapes from this winery, these grapes are naturally also picked manually during the first 10 days of September. After this comes the removal of the stems and peeling soaking at a controlled temperature of 28 to 30 ° C for 10 to 15 days. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques. Maturation for 12 months in the same barriques, followed by aging in the bottle.
This delicious Noà is a red, high quality wine with fine tannins, the texture is fleshy. The wine is medium to full-bodied in the mouth with a balanced taste due to the presence of ripe plums, black currants, grilled herbs, both mineral and spicy. A wonderfully subtle and creamy final provides an extremely pleasant taste experience. A powerful, rich wine that certainly lives up to its beautiful Parker appreciation.
This wine works well with spicy dishes with pork and beef, but also tastes great with lamb and game. Can also go well with the somewhat harder (Italian) cheeses.
Winery Cusumano works primarily with native Sicilian grapes, as most people in Sicily do. In the 90s his sons Alberto and Diego Cusumano took over the winery and since then brought it to the top 10 of Sicilian wine producers. Already 14 times they could reach the highest rating in the Gambero Rosso. Particularly remarkable about this winery is the very high level of all wines, from the simple bianco to the rare rosso. Their statement: "Every drop is a masterpiece" is therefore completely correct, and certainly for this red Noà!
