Nero d’Avola, Sicily’s ubiquitous grape variety, exists in the island with so many biotypes, versions, features and interpretations that is really difficult to outline a single profile. Since this is a very elegant variety, one that knows very well the environment where it thrives, denying it the space it deserves would mean missing a central figure from our culture. We grow it at 200 meters above sea level on a fresh soil, with a fair amount of limestone and sand. This is how we got a leafy Nero d’Avola vine with juicy violet-shaded berries. The resulting wine is called Nenè, like the protagonist of the story “Il Mare Colore Del Vino” by Leonardo Sciascia. Long lasting, fresh and fruity with strong hints of cherry and red fruits. In our opinion, it is so pleasant to drink that we have worked to make it a resourceful all-rounder that goes well with both meat and fish, especially if enriched with Mediterranean spices. Since it is a red wine, it is also made to cleanse the palate and make it ready for another bite… and another sip.
