Nero D’Avola DOC

Nero D'Avola DOC - Sicilia

“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.
