A sumptuously rich, blackberry spice red using Sicily’s prized Nero d’Avola. It’s from mature vineyards halfway between the coast and the high hills of Salemi. Neglected since the 1968 earthquake, it's been lovingly restored. Here's the tasty result.

Save the vines and enjoy a gorgeous, rich red! Poggioreale used to be an important wine village in Sicily. It was where Dino Taschetta grew up, like generations of his family before him. After an earthquake reduced Poggioreale to ruins in 1968, a new town was built further down the hill and the vineyards above the village, more difficult to get to, were then neglected for decades. Now, with many of the island’s oldest Nero d’Avola vines grubbed up, there’s even more reason to treasure what’s left. Dino recently returned to the family estate and began to restore the vineyard. His first vintage was 2017 and our Buyer has been so impressed, he's bought it every year since. A top choice with roast pork or layered aubergine and mozzarella bake.

"Lovely velvety wine in the tradition of the best Sicilians. Easily the best Nero d'Avola I've tasted" 5-Star Online Review
