User Reviews for Ceuso Scurati Red

Winemaker's Notes:

Azienda Agricola Ceuso is a tiny estate of 30 hectares (of which 22 are cultivated to vines on limestone and clay soils) started by three brothers - Antonino, Giuseppe, and Vincenzo Melia - who had careers as a farmer, oenologist, and agronomist respectively before opening shop in 1990. Their Alcamo-area winery is still a work in progress, housed in a weather-beaten old baglio that's slowly being renovated. This estate is located in the hills between the communes of Salemi and Trapani. Density of planting is 4.600 wines per hectare and production is about 45 to 50 hectolitres per hectare. The climate is mild in winter with dry and windy conditions during spring and summer. Harvest is done by hand, usually at the end of September. Scurati is made up from 100% Nero d'Avola. Maceration is on the skins for 12-14 days at a controlled temperature of 28 degrees centigrade in stainless steel tanks. After a total malolactic fermentation the wine is aged for a further year in tank. The wine is very clean in nature due to stainless ageing and tastes of plum and black berries and a velvety chocolate finish. The wine would go well with grilled vegetables and even better with lighter meats or try Maccu, broad beans sometimes eaten with wild chicory, sometimes with roasted tomatoes, fried peppers and broccoli and served as a thick soup.
