In a nutshell: A lively, minerally, fresh and juicy Sicilian Nero d'Avola
The lowdown: Forget big, dark, rich southern Italian fruit bombs this has lots of clean red and dark fruits with plenty of acidity that gets the mouth watering. It has been made by natural fermentation without the addition of yeasts and this spontaneity and unpredictability has followed through onto the wine. A refreshing change to convention.
When to drink: Very slighty chilled is the best way to serve this and it's a very versatile food partner.
Under the guidance of the dynamic Vesco family since the early 2010s viticultural practices have been revolutionised and they've invested heavily in cutting edge technology for the winery and bottling line. Their hundred hectares of organic vineyards are located high up in the hills above Alcamo and the wines are all certified organic and planted on south-east facing slopes on sandy soils 150 300m above sea level.
