The Di Giovanna Nero d' Avola is a more powerful, masculine style of the native Sicilian grape that is typically plumy and soft. Thanks to rigorous vineyard work and yields reduced by 50% the wine is very concentrated and flavorful. It expresses the unique terroir and climate with a striking minerality. 50% of the Nero d'Avola was aged in second year French oak barrels for 6 months to impart a silky texture and roundness on the pallet. The wine was aged in bottle for 6 months before release.
