Place: Sicily, Italy
Variety: Nero d'Avola
The Vesco family took over these vineyards in the nineties and reimagined the farming practices, opting for organics and eschewing chemicals in both the vineyard and cellar. Located in the Alcamo hills on sandy soils at 150-350masl, their wines share freshness, salinity and guzzleability.
This is their nero d'Avola, a juicy and medium-bodied affair best enjoyed alongside dishes that you'd find on the checked tablecloth that adorns the label.
