2019 – Nero d’Avola e Syrah
Sicilia Denominazione di Origine Controllata
Profound driving forces and the will to
listen – what Sicilians term “dare adènzia”
(giving audience) – and an insistence
on depth, in an act of understanding
that is life itself: Nero d’Avola and Syrah
combine to create something
of greater value than the sum of their parts.

“Very wide-ranging spectrum of aromas, with notes of sour cherries and forest fruits, together with delicious hints of vanilla. Caressing and spicy, with firm, but graceful tannins. A wine that can be cellared over 10 years.”
