2012 Eloro Nero d’Avola “Sciavè”


2012 Eloro Nero d’Avola “Sciavè” Riofavara - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Massimo’s master stroke is extracting the true character of Sicilian Nero d’Avola while vinifying it in a style that retains freshness and energy. He has the terroir for it, which is of course half the battle, but knowing how to get it from the vine to the bottle is the other pretty crucial half. Bravo, Massimo. –Dixon Brooke
