“Quite simply, the wines of Sicily have never been better than they are right now. The combination of drastically diverse terroirs, a huge uptick in quality and a vast number of varieties has created an embarrassment of riches for the discerning wine lover.” Eric Guido, Vinous Media.
Nero D’Avola is the most widely grown and important variety in Sicily. This example is grown on black, silt rich, compacted soils 100 and 300 metres above sea level. Fermentation is conducted for 12-15 days at 24- 30°C with daily pump-overs and 1 delestage. The wine is matured in stainless steel tanks and minimal oak contact to preserve fruit freshness. This has more density, richer aroma of dark plums, blackberries, with hints of aniseed. It’s medium weight, sweet fruited with soft tannins and mineral like acidity. Absolutely delicious !
“The dark, rich, intensely fruity yet structured Nero d’Avola in varietal form may one day receive the attention it deserves, but until then, it remains firmly under the radar.” Eric Guido, Vinous Media. “Sicily: The Island Nation, June 2021
