Seforha Nero D’Avola 2015
Nero d’Avola is Siciliy’s most precious red grape and one of Italy’s most important indigenous varietals. Until the 1980s it was almost exclusively used to add colour and weight to the lighter reds of France and Northern Italy as it had a tendency to run to alcohol. However modern techniques, both in the vineyard and in the winery, allow winemakers nowadays to maintain the inherent varietal character without the overwhelming alcohol. As a result Nero is often compared to Shiraz, with smooth fruit flavours and very approachable tannins.
