Winemaker's Notes

Fermented in stainless steel and aged in large cement vats, it has an intense ruby shade. Intense impact on the nose, with fruity notes typical of Nero d'Avola that then leave space for hints of fresh, aromatic green. Intense and concentrated in the mouth, it has impressive body sustained by a firm tannic fabric and fresh acidity. A satisfying finish.

A terrific value. Nero d'Avola pairs beautifully with pasta dishes, pizza, red meat dishes and summertime BBQ.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep ruby. Complex aromas of smoky dark berries, herbs and sexy oak, plus a suggestion of wet earth and ink. Then rich, sweet and ripe, with a slightly animal quality and a hint of dried herbs complicating the dark fruit flavors. Finishes with chewy tannins and good length, but with air became drier, showing more wood tannins."

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