Sicily's important native Nero D'avola grape is used for this exuberant, fresh, sappy red. Dry and spicy this is perfect for lighter fare and ideal for picnics and grilling. Fans of Zinfandel and Shiraz take notice! Pronounced "I-Yello My-Yoos"

"...This offers a lot of complexity at an exceptionally fair price..."

With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
