NV Val di Botte Nero d' Avola
Nestled off the coast of Southern Italy, the terroir of the island of Sicily produces wines so unique, it is nearly impossible to duplicate their charismatic style. The prominent grape of Sicily, Nero d’Avola, also known as the “Black Grape of Avola” crafts wines that are bold in nature, with sweet fruit flavors, subtly sweet smoky notes, and nuances of spice that actually become sweeter with decanting. When sipping on Val di Botte Nero d’Avola, you’ll notice a strong presence of blackberry and plum, with hints of licorice and chile pepper. Try pairing this wine with unique dishes like oxtail stews and other gamy meats and anything with applewood-smoked bacon.
