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.
Fresh-picked, dirt covered raspberries, pressed underripe strawberries, currants and mint leaves.

A faint pop of sweetness with pink peppercorn and red chili flakes, plus frozen blueberries and earthy violets.
