The Presidential selection

The mosaic of colors and flavors at Caruso & Minini winery is further enriched by the Presidential Selection, which perfectly encapsulates the history and essence of the Marsala hinterland vineyard throughout the ages. This highly coveted collection proudly takes its place in the Caruso & Minini portfolio, paying homage to the fertility and excellence of the vineyard hills that have been in the Caruso family for generations. The top four high-quality wines – Nino, Cutaja, Delia Nivolelli, and Arya Spumante classic method sparkling wine – were crafted to elevate the value of native Sicilian vines and celebrate the art of classic method sparkling wine.

Nino Gran Cru

The iconic wine of Caruso & Minini winery, the symbol of a project of love, respect for the land and passion for the local wine culture; a great red wine that embodies all the values handed down by grandfather Nino to his sons Stefano, Francesco and Roberto, and then, passed down to his grandchildren. Nino Gran Crù is the result of careful selective hand harvesting in the vineyard, within a high hilly area in the Trapani hinterland. 2 Different grape harvests which the first one takes place in September to best preserve the organoleptic profile of the grapes with a subsequent passage in the fruit cellar for gradual drying. The second grape harvest occurs at the beginning of October after a natural drying of the bunches on the overripe plant. With different percentages, this practice is adopted on a selection of the best black grapes giving life to this iconic wine of the Caruso family. The work in the cellar followes a slow process of maceration and fermentation at controlled temperature for each single variety (about a month per each); once the malolactic fermentation is completed, a light pressing is carried out. Nino Gran Crù stands out for its complex and distinctive elegance due to fine tannins. On the palate, this red wine is characterized by a light sweetness thanks to the overripe grapes and by the maturation process carried out in French wooden tonneaux (four years) and another 12 months spent in the bottle before marketing. An emotion to be
experienced and savored on special occasions.

Delia Nivolelli

Syrah riserva

A magnificent 100% Syrah wine which name comes from the DOC Delia Nivolelli appellation. After a careful hand harvesting carried out over the last ten days of September, the grapes are destemmed and macerated at controlled temperature for approximately 15/20 hours; the 2 years of French wooden tonneaux maturation allowes the appellation ‘Riserva’. A deep and layered wine characterized by a ripe red fruits and flower bouquet (dried violet, peony), balanced with the excellent roundness on the palate which refines its structure.


Nero d’avola riserva
