Very nice, clean. Good texture. Really well made but not the most interesting

Bright and fruity Nero d’Avola (60%) and Frappato (40%) blend by one of Sicily’s most influential and probably the first biodynamic producer in the island. Aged in unlined terracotta amphora for 6 months. Light, medium bodied, elegant and savory. Black olives, cured meat, leather and earthy notes.

Light and acidic, bright but not too fruity. A little bit of bret. 12%. We served slightly cooled, with halibut and black truffle pasta... was a perfect pairing. I would say it is a little overpriced but a nice, simple, elegant wine.

Awesome wine. Drank over three days. First two, an elegant well balanced wine that tastes like a Nebbiolo but without heavy tannins. Has more body than a 12% al wine would suggest. Various berries esp strawberries. But in an elegant style. Really like this. I think this is a clay-stored wine? Forgot the term. Btw, not so great day three.

Probably the best red we’ve had so far in Sicily. Clean, expressive.

Wow, wonderfully interesting. Greenish and grassy, solid tannic structure, bright. Mineral, berry, cranberry, tart plum, resinous; slightly saline/seaweed/chlorophyll.
