Grapes are sourced from southern Sicily, around Riesi - Nero d’Avola’s traditional heartland. Traditional fermentation at 26 to 30C, between 5 and 10 days maceration, bottled young with no oak ageing.
A deeply coloured, full-flavoured, spicy red with perfumed aromas of wild strawberry and black cherry. The palate combines abundant brambly fruit flavours with lightly smoky and savoury notes, a hint of bitter chocolate and structured tannins.
Drink with juicy home-made burgers with a slab of mozarella, or charred lamb steaks.
