Da Vero Biologico Red, IGT Terre Siciliane [Organic] 2017

IAV1001

Adria Vini

Totally delicious, organic and new! A ‘must try’ this summer from Sicily’s organic sweet spot! Sicily’s warm, dry climate is ideal for organic cultivation and most vineyards already use very little spraying against diseases and pests. So the island is a great source of good, affordable organic wines. The Da Vero wines ('davvero' meaning ‘really’ or ‘naturally’ in Italian) are the result of our long relationship (over 10 years) with a cooperative in Sicily - who we have been working with since our Sicilan project began. They also happen to have the island's largest plantings of organic vines!

Production

The Nero d'Avola grapes are sourced from the area around Salemi (Province of Trapani) in the north-west tip of Sicily. The vines are Guyot-trained, and grown at around 250m altitude on a combination of soil types. The vineyards were converted to organic viticulture in 2007. The grapes are macerated on the skins for 8-12 days, then racked and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation.

Tasting notes

Ripe aromas of black fruit and a hint of spice. The palate is full with rich plum and bramble fruit characters, and plump tannins.

Food match

Rich pasta dishes, casseroles and grilled meats
