At Year 7, it is drinking beautifully right now! The estate sits on 65 hectares situated in Bivona in the south-central zone of Sicily near the town of Palazzo Adriana, the site of the wonderful film, Cinema Paradiso.

 

This wine is produced from Nero d’Avola grape  grown at 650 meters altitude and aged in the non-interventionist style: no added yeasts, no temperature stabilization, no fining or filtering. Deep in color, exuberant in personality, and an exceptional value as well. Fruits lean toward black cherry and blackberry, with notes of licorice and dark chocolate. It’s a proud sun-drenched southerner, ample and gregarious, but with tons of high-toned spice to balance, as well as a well-mannered flirtation with volatility that remains firmly on the correct side of the fence.
