Another installment in the FUSO project from Portovino importers, this time from Sicily! This organically grown Nero d'Avola (co-fermented with a touch of Grillo, another native grape to the region) comes from a terroir with desert-like soil composition and marked temperature fluctuations. All of which gives the fruit a lifted brightness and tension, unique for this typically heartier grape. Tart plums and berries on the palate, with hints of red tea and spices on the nose. Even better with a slight chill.
