Winemaker's Notes

Perfumes explode from the glass - cherries and caramel char, cinnamon and cranberry - once the bottle is opened. The flavors are at once lush and precise, as every sip gives you the incredible, delectable sensation of biting through the skin and flesh of the ripest summer fruit. Plums, raspberries, orange rinds blend with rose petals, pomegranate jam, even hints of red apples. Nerello captures the harmony of fine Burgundy with the stately grace of Barolo, yet given its volcanic heart, is definitely its own experience.

Critical Acclaim

"This shows loads of intense fruit with dark berries and plums. Full bodied, with super velvety and polished tannins and a long, long finish. This is generous and complex. Drink now or hold."

Very nice wine. Well aged. Best after decanting. May age but also fun to drink now.

Learn About Sicily

(SIH-sih-lee) Sicily makes a lot o' wine. From Marsala, the sweet, fortified wine of the region, to up-and-coming Nero d'Avola, this hot and hilly region is diverse. 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...
