THE GRAPE AND THE LAND
Nero d’Avola is arguably the most important indigenous red grape from the island of Sicily. It grows well just about everywhere on the island, but is often over extracted and aged in oak. Our goal in making this Nero d’Avola was letting the delicious vinous quality of the grape shine through. Our vineyard is located at the base of Montagna Grande at 350m above sea level with clay soils that are very poor in nutrients creating the perfect conditions for bright, fresh red wine.
