The wines are all estate grown and the family owns and operates more than 1,000 acres of vineyards located in different areas around Sicily. Nero d'Avola grapes are manually selected in the rich, white soil vineyards of San Giacomo, which produces a refreshing fruit-forward wine that pairs perfectly with meat-based meals.

This wine has become part of the Sicilia DOC since the last time I tasted it. The 2018 Sicilia Nero d'Avola (closed with a glass cork) shows a dark color saturation and a terrific personality. The unoaked wine is bright and thick, with plenty of dark primary fruit to grab your attention. The intensity is there, but the complexity not so much. It hardly matters anyway because this wine is all about freshness and easy-drinking accessibility. I would pair it with my favorite spicy sausage and broccoletti pizza.
