Nero d’Avola 100%
Vineyard Trapani countryside – Dàgala Borromeo Estate
6 months in American durmast barriques
TASTING NOTES Color: intense ruby red with lively purplish hues along the edges. Nose: it has an impeccable and fragrant fruit of surprising sharpness that reveals a profusion of scents that alternate in recalling plum and blackberries, black cherries and bilberries, cloves, black pepper, liquorice, dark chocolate and humus. Palate: it admirably blends all its power with expressive delicacy revealing a suave depth; it has an assertive character that is well tempered by the silky and delightful tannins; the match between nose and palate is polished and extraordinary. Characteristics: made entirely from Sicily’s most important red grape, it is a daring and strong, at times even austere and reserved wine; its extraordinary nature unfolds fully if it is left the time needed to express itself.
