Sicilian origins, grown typically of inland hilly areas, the grapes of the Nero d’Avola express all the Sicilian terroir.
This wine is intense ruby red in colour. It is characterized by an embracing aroma with strong notes of red-berried fruits in perfect harmony with notes of spices and vanilla. It is rich, ample and persistent on the palate with a distinct but pleasant note of freshness, which is typical of this grape variety. It is ideal served with asparagus based dishes, soups and grilled peppers.
