Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh from Sicily's Mediterranean coast, Mirabile Nero d'Avola is a fruit forward and easy drinking expression of Sicily at its best. Teaming with flavors of ripe cherries and exotic spices, it represents an incredible value!
My Notes:

About Mirabile:

Mirabile perfectly interprets the elegance of the Sicilian land, and with its simple character one can appreciate magical traditions, through history and modernity. Mirabile expresses and values the potential of the territory and of the autochthonous vines while considering the possibility of new, experimental vines.

Mirabile's vineyards are located in the Gurra Soprana District in Sicily, Italy. The 4 to 15 year-old vines include the varietals Nero D'Avola, Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Inzolia, Syrah, and Viognier. Soil composition is a mix of clay and sand. Harvesting is still performed traditionally by manual picking of the grapes moved in small crates.
