2015 Prodigo Nero d' Avola

2015 Prodigo Nero d' Avola
Volume: 750 mL , Alcohol: 13.5%
This wine may taste unfamiliar because Nero d’ Avola is not a grape you come across every day. It’s the kind of wine that evokes memories of spring days when you were young. It has deep layers of earth and black cherries, and drinks like volcano juice with savory tobacco and molten rock on the back of the palate.

More about this wine from Prodigo, Italy
This is the kind of wine that evokes memories of spring days when you were young and would go flower hunting. It has deep layers of earth and dark, almost black cherries. A lot of this intense flavor comes from the way the grapes are harvested - much later in the season so that they have time to really ripen, which increases the sugar and alcohol content. They then go through a drying process called “appassimento,” giving them an even more intense flavor.

This wine may taste slightly unfamiliar because Nero d’ Avola is not a grape you come across every day. Sicily is known for its plethora of dope indigenous grape varieties, and Nero d’ Avola is arguably one of the most acclaimed! This wine drinks like volcano juice, with savory tobacco and molten rock on the back of the palate.
