Nero d’Avola • Maggiovini
Nero d’Avola is the prince of Sicilian red wines. It is characterized by a deep and intense ruby red color and a bouquet that contrasts with the typical spicy notes of hints of red berry fruit such as marasca or raspberries. The flavor is full, full-bodied and persistent, with velvety and always pleasant tannins.
