Color: Intense ruby red. Aroma: Cherry and raspberry fruity and a spicy background, nicely balanced. Flavor: Full, warm and elegant, very persistent, with typical austere, but polite, tannins. Best paired with: Meat dishes, Nebrodi suckling pig, game meats and roasts, grilled meats and filets. Highly recommended with aged D.O.P. ragusano cheese.

Bright medium-dark red; this is very pretty but lighter than usual in color for this wine. Spicy aromas and flavors of red cherry and minerals have remarkable inner-mouth perfume. Actually smells like a little Frappato found its way into the vats. Finishes long and spicy, with good juicy cut and pungent nuances. Really lovely.

Made with Nero d'Avola, this opens with aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, Mediterranean brush and cooking spice. The juicy palate offers blackberry jam, star anise and vanilla alongside velvety tannins and bright acidity. Drink through 2024.

Finely delineated and tight, the 2015 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Il Moro is a unique, leanly textured expression of this Sicilian grape. This wine offers nuance and detail on the bouquet with dark cherry, spice, leather and pipe tobacco. It is light-hearted in character and purposely avoids the heaviness and richness you often get with this grape. Instead, you are treated to a fresh and easy-drinking interpretation. Bottle production is 30,000 units strong.
