Antonio Moretti, a successful entrepreneur, remained deeply impressed during a trip to Noto in the 1990’s. Owner of several important brands, among them Tenuta Sette Ponti in Tuscany, he decided, right then and there, that this would be an ideal spot to create a new winery in Sicily. The first purchases began in the year 2000, and involved acquisitions from more from the 50 different owners of land. Thus Feudo Maccari was born, one of the new houses of major interest on the island, whose heart beats to the rhythm of Maccari. The grape variety of this area has a name and a territory, Nero d’Avola, cultivated exclusively as a bush vine, one of the oldest and most natural way of cultivating this plant. It is certainly one of the native varieties of greatest interest in Sicily, and is characterized by structure, intensity, roundness, and the longevity of its wines. These typical characteristics are to be found in all of the Feudo Maccari wines, particularly in the three most important labels which the winery produces under the guidance of winemaker Carlo Ferrini. ReNoto, a Nero d’Avola with small percentages of Syrah, is a wine for young drinking, fermented in stainless steel tanks, a medium ruby in color, rich in fresh and fruity sensations on the nose with notes of blueberries and raspberries, well structured and savory on the palate, a very inviting wine. A joyous, carefree wine, excellent for all occasions and easy-drinking, a fine match with red meat and grilled meat. ReNoto Rosé, an intriguing and versatile cherry red wine, floral and fruity on the nose with notes of pears and ripe cherries, is fresh and juicy in flavor, tasty and long. An excellent aperitif, or to accompany blue fish or white meat. Saia, 100% Nero d’Avola, is a wine of character, a deep and brilliant ruby red which alternates sensations of sweet, ripe fruit and notes of spices, balanced and harmonious on the palate, very long and sustained. Explosively fruity and very supple, it is a wine which is very representative of its territory, a true paragon of its zone.
