"Paccamora means 'immediately' in Sicilian. The wines, with their fresh, forward fruit, are as Sicilian as the name. They are made by Alberto Antonini at Curatolo Arini. These smartly packaged wines offer great value.
The Inzolia has an aromatic lift and a supple texture that distinguishes it from the crowd. The Nero d'Avola has lovely colour, a ripe and inviting richness on the nose and a good depth of fruit on the palate that is corseted by a grainy tannin structure. These smartly packaged wines offer great value, and a strikingly Sicilian personality."

The vineyards are located in western Sicily, near the towns of Vita and Salemi, about 50 km north of Marsala and at 300 m above sea level. The vines are east facing, trained to a vertical trellis system and planted on sandy and clay rich soil.
After de-stemming, the grapes were macerated on their skins for several hours at low temperatures (6-8°C) before being gently pressed. Fermentation then took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine was then left on its lees for several weeks before being bottled.
The nose is fresh and vibrant with citrus notes and hints of peach, apricot and white melon. The palate is supple with fresh acidity and a long, crisp finish.
Food Suggestion: Grilled seafood, especially shellfish, with a generous serving of cous cous, pine nuts and roast vegetables.
Closure: Stelvin ABV:12.5%
