Winemaker's Notes

Intensely ruby-red in color with supple aromas of ripe black cherry and blackberry, followed by spicy notes of charcoal, vanilla and black pepper. On the palate, bursting flavors of ripe fruit and exotic spice are balanced by pleasant acidity and silky tannins.

Delicious with roasted meats, eggplant parmigiana, pasta, grilled pork chops and veal casseroles.

A bargain for the wine you get for the $. Just open early or decant and enjoy the unique taste of Sicily's nero d'avola grape! Not your typical Italian chianti type of wine.

Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
