"The Nero d'Avola embodies Sicily's most important native grape variety from its intense purple color to its unmistakable character. Made from 100% Nero d'Avola, the nose is a rush of black fruits and spices. The palate is extraordinarily round and complete, with a completely natural and effortless balance of tannin and acidity, structure and length. Enjoy with spaghettis, barbecued pork ribs or grilled steak." ~ Winery notes
