"The 2009 Rosso opens with sweet dark fruit and warm spiced notes. Floral overtones add lift and complexity. Six months in Slavonian oak gives the Rosso a touch more body and spiciness than the straight Nero d'Avola. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014. " (WA)

Winery Notes:
The color is an intense dark ruby red. A dry, full-bodied wine with aromas of black fruit, blackberry and strawberries. Perfect with red meats and aged cheese.

Sicilia Rosso is a tribute to the oldest and most typical Sicilian grapes, Nero d`Avola, also called Calabrese. The synonym Calabrese is an “Italianization” of the old Sicilian dialect name for the species “Calavrisi” which means literally “Avolla grape” or” grape originat- ing in Avola”. Perhaps first used in the provinces of Siracusa and Ragusa, over the years it spread to some extent throughout Sicily but not Etna. Great red wines can be made from this species. The most important and typical feature is the bouquet of red fruit, which remains after long years of aging. But the great diversity of the production areas in the North, South, East and West of the island gives special character to the Nero d’Avola they produce.
