A delicious Sicilian red wine made in western Sicily from the native grapes of Nero d'Avola and Perricone. You'll enjoy very pure red fruits on the palate all wrapped up in luscious acidity that will pair well with any number of rich dishes. Unoaked.

Staff Pick Notes

Looking for a delicious Sicilian wine to carry you into the New Year? I recommend this blend of two native grape varieties, Nero d'Avola (70% of the blend) and Perricone (30%).

It's fresh and lively on the palate, with red berry fruits, and a thrill of acidity that perks up your taste buds, while still retaining a silky smooth mouthfeel. The liveliness of this wine will be just the energy you need to start focusing on your New Year's goals--that is, after you pair it with a few slices of pizza and a relaxing evening on the sofa.
