A red dry wine with a deep red color. Its aromatic characteristics consist of fruity and spicy fresh aroma with hints of plum, black currant, licorice, dark chocolate and barrel. On the mouth we detect a medium-bodied, well-structured taste of fresh fruit and a hint of spiciness, soft acids and discreet oak character, hints of licorice and violets. You could pair it with pasta with red sauce, meat, pork and beef.

Mare Magnum is a wine company with an international team of winemakers who travel around the world collaborating with local producers and creating alluring and modern wines. The two grape varieties are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. Nero d’Avola ferments for 5-6 days at around 25°C and the Cabernet Sauvignon fermentation process is similar, the only difference is the temperature of fermentation which is slightly higher. During fermentation both parts of the must are daily overpumped. After the separate malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, half of Cabernet Sauvignon is matured for a period of time in oak, while Nero d’Avola is matured only in stainless steel tanks. When the wine has reached the satisfactory level of structure decided by the winemaker, the two parts of the Cabernet Sauvignon are blended. Thereafter the last blend is made of both Nero d’Avola and Cabernet Sauvignon which results in the final cuvée.
