Another installment in the FUSO project from the 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.

We get tart plums and berries on the palate, with hints of red tea and spices on the nose. You can even put a little chill on this wine to accentuate the pop!
