Growth, like the vine, knows no boundaries. Therefore, several years ago the family decided to export wines worldwide. In the United States they joined with the Deutsch Family, an importer, and together consistently increased Villa Pozzi's presence in the U.S. Daniele Pozzi - the 4th generation family winemaker - continues to catapult the inspiring legacy and tradition of the Pozzi family wine business into the future.

Villa Pozzi Nero d'Avola 2012
Nero d'Avola from Sicily, Italy
An intense, inky red, the Nero d'Avola seductively reveals a gorgeous perfume of blackberry liqueur, white flowers, vanilla, and a hint of figs delivered in a leather basket. On the palate, this wine is opulent, full-bodied, and viscous, with a great intensity, superb purity, and a layered, seamless personality that would convince most tasters that this is New World personified.
Villa Pozzi Winery
The Pozzi Family is originally from Cremona, in Northern Italy. Cremona is a small but culturally rich city. Here, people have always enjoyed a relaxed lifestyle, lots of great food and of course, excellent wine.

This is another wine I tried simply because the varietal was new to me. My initial impression was negative. It started with a bitter tannin kick and then disappeared. I had a glass, put the rest in the 'fridge, and used some for meatballs. I tried it the next night cold. This made a huge difference. This (red) wine should be tasted cold. It has a reasonably complex flavor with some noticeable fruit - mostly blackberries. It started off smooth and light and stayed that way. As a chilled beverage, this is a great choice. This is a wine to drink cold on a hot summer picnic. At $10, it is as cheap as some wine coolers or Sangria. The wine is a far better choice as a beverage by comparison. I give it 3 stars accordingly. If you want a Cabernet with your steak for dinner, this isn't your wine. Chilled, it makes for a light, tasty by-the-pool sort of beverage.aviva1964 - Moffat, CO46/19/2014

This is an easy drinking wine that has enough body to stand up to spicy foods. It's also smooth enough to drink alone. Has a nicely sweet finish.43/9/2013

A balances expression of Nero d'Avola with the dark fruit and raisiney nuances I expect from this wine. A nice value too!Rajil - Olathe, KS13/6/201343/6/2013

This is an easy drinking red that is great as a dinner wine. It has a nice fruity body and is just bold enough to keep your interest. It will be one of my favorites.Related Products

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
