Amato Vino Nero d'Avola 2014
A light-bodied, red-fruited lush combo of savoury & sweet, showing complex flavours from earth/meat to spice/florals; with snappy acidity and a seductive, moreish palate. Enjoy it young. Only 150 dozen made.
Amato Vino is a small-batch artisan winery in the Margaret River wine region, Western Australia.
The winery is a few minutes south-west of the Margaret River township.
Amato Vino focuses on Mediterranean varieties, micro-batches and ‘lo-fi’ winemaking styles. Single vineyards, handpicks, natural ferments; incorporating minimal winemaking input, little or no adds, and unconventional vessels for fermentation/maturation – the wild stuff.
Two growing areas are utilised – Margaret River, where the climate is cool and Mediterranean varieties are a rarity, and the Riverland (SA), where hot summers are the norm and the region is home to myriad extraordinary grape varieties grown on small plots dotted along the Murray River.
