“An ancient grape variety for a modern wine” The Nero D’Avola (known also as Calabrese) is the most representative red wine grape varietal in Sicily.

Ruby-Red wine, vinificated and aged exclusively in stainless steel in order to maintain unaltered the characteristics of this grape. On the nose is particularly fruity with scents of sour cherry, prunes and blackberries with more complex aroma of black pepper, black olives and ink. Soft and round on the palate, smooth and enveloping, full-bodied but characterized by a crispy end due to the semi-evolved tannins. It’s perfect with red meat, elaborated sauces and strong cheeses.

Wine varietal: Nero d’Avola 100%

Production area: Riesi (CL) – Mazara (TP)

The harvest is in the second decay of September. The grapes, once collected and became must, are left macerate over the grape skins for all the period of fermentation, to obtain the maximum extract of the color.

The aging takes place exclusively in stainless steel tanks for a period of six months.

Alcohol content: 14% vol.

To be tasted at 16°C
