Food Pairings for Borgo Selene Nerello Mascalese Nero D Avola
The Curatolo family has been producing excellent Marsala and creditable wine for over a century. Since the 1999 vintage Alberto Antonini has acted as a consultant to the Curatolos and brought with him the modern winemaking skills that allow the varieties to express their maximum potential. The Borgo Selene wines (‘Selene’ is derived from Greek word for ‘moon’, an illustration of the influence of the Greeks who also brought the vine to Sicily, have had on the Mediterranean’s largest island) are made and blended by Alberto Antonini. Produced from selected grapes grown in two different vineyards: one near Marsala and one near central Sicily. The Curatolo familycurrently has over 100 hectares under vine. This delicious red blend is ruby red in colour with fresh notes of red berries, cherries and plums. It is round and smooth on the palate, with lovely soft tannins.
