The Rapitala estate covers 225 hectares on rolling hills, sloping down from Camporeale towards Alcamo, in the west of Sicily. The wine is called Nuhar and means “flower” in Arabic.
On this ancient land, the vineyards dominate the landscape, one after another, sketching out a geometry of rows that the sun and Mediterranean hues transform into golden hills.
The word Rapitalà comes from the Arabic “Rabidh-Allah” – the “river of Allah”, from the stream that flows among the vineyards, and an ode to the countryside that has been cultivated since ancient times.
Over the centuries, generations of farmers mapped out the current form and identity of the estate. Here, they use two great black varieties: Pinot Nero, the king of Burgundy, which responds to the warmth of Sicily with colour, sweetness and depth improbable elsewhere; and Nero d’Avola, which in these conditions acquires impressive tannins and body.
The body of the Nero d’Avola in the wine makes this perfect for Bresaola. Paid Nuhar Tenuta Rapitala with bresaola and gorgonzola.
